    How about Ghostsurf for being anonymous online? Does it actually work to hide your IP address and actually make you "invisible". I've been fooling with proxy servers to try and get invisible for free but when I check IP reporting sites it can tell it's a proxy and what my real one is, what's the point then?

    Try the proxy test at All NetTools. There's a few other sites the offer the same type of test but this is the one that I can always remember off the top of my head.

    Most of the "free" proxy sites that give true "anonymous" browsing tend to get shut off quickly. Usually they are just holes or oversights in some companies proxy.

    If you trust going to a .ru site there's plenty to read about proxies here:

    firefox 3.0 beta 2. Its an amazing browser. Initially during the times of firefox 1...I was unreceptive of the idea. However...once I started using FF 2 last year. After the little nifty things such as automatic filled in forms....better bookmark integration, skinability...I never look back to IE anymore. I can't wait for the final Firefox 3 to come out. Its pretty cool already at the beta stage.

    Indeed. In all my YouTube videos I always recommend Firefox.

    I'm going to check out Ghostsurf 2007 tomorrow and see if it eliminates my IP presence. I checked my threat attempts log from my firewall and there's just so many thwarted efforts I think (hope) if I have an anonymous IP I won't have such things cos I shop online a lot and surf even more.

    I've used both....no matter what, I get lots of ad crap (idk how, since I only go to facebook, the CP forums, and my gmail/school-based email). They're both equally slow for me as well, and I'm not nerdy enough to need the open-sourcedness or blah blah blah add-on capability of firefox. Plus...FF just looks funny to me and displays things awkwardly

    Safari for me. Firefox and Safari are great and support javascript features that Internet Explorer 7 just doesn't want to know about. IE7 is nice to use, but hell to produce websites for.

    Firefox is the best of the 2 for sure. If you want to pay though, you can't beat Opera. Last time I saw it you could pay for it or get an ad supported version. It is actually faster than Firefox from a cold startup.
