Anonymous web browsing is browsing the World Wide Web while hiding the user's IP address and any other personally identifiable information from the websites that one is visiting.
When browsing the web, the computer connects to the target server by contacting the web page with the user's IP address and sharing other computer information, including the browser and operating system version. This information can be used to track the user. However, a certain degree of anonymity can be achieved by using a proxy server or a VPN server. The proxy server works by redirecting the communication through itself. The browser's IP address is then only shared with the proxy server while the target website only sees the proxy server's information. Proxy Checker is a free tool that allows you to test proxy servers and check whether they can work with the software.
Whenever you surf the internet your ip address is being logged by every website you visit. A simple check of web logs will show the ip address of everyone that visited a particular website. These logs can be kept for years, and can send a trace back to you! It's not a matter of just covering your tracks as most of us have nothing to hide, it's a matter of *privacy*. Your right to privacy is being compromised when browsing without a proxy.
A web-based proxy is a service that allows you to bypass your own internet provider and browse using the proxy web-based website. All that you have to do is type the website address you would like to visit in the form they provide, and start browsing. Once you keep browsing using that form, you are protected and your *real* ip address is not being logged. There are many web based proxies to choose from. Start browsing using the featured selection.
