i haven't tried Tor but i have the Anonymizer software, i really hate that it takes forever to come up since it demands to look for updates for the anti spyware, data shredder, and anonymous email programs that came with it that i dont bother using and didn't activate. i prefure software rather then going to an Proxy site. i'd prefure just a stand alone anonymous IP browsing software but Tor is the only other software that i've heard of. is there a way to do it yourself? i'd like to hear some input on which of these two are considered better or any other ways to hide an IP.

    Hi there,

    There are quite a few choices out there, and here are a few good examples:

    1. Primedius Anonymizer (I think the url for that is
    2. Browzar (Free, based on IE, no installation)
    3. Torpark Browser ( - free, portable, zero-install,pre-configured, fully anonymous and
    encrypted browser, based on FireFox, connects via the Onion Router Network, can be put on usb and run directly)

    Whatever your need, these tools are great to assure privacy and anonymity on the Internet.

    Hope this helps!
