Anonymity while surfing the Internet is pretty hard to come by, even when using 'Privacy mode' in the web browser of choice. There are some specialized solutions that offer a bit more and are really effective in preventing the monitoring of one's browsing habits and thus protecting the seclusion of personal data.
In case you are a Firefox user, it is most likely that you will have to resort to an add-on that can help you in keeping your private information and visited sites away from prying eyes. One of the most popular extensions is the one called anonymoX and it's main goal is to provide a completely anonymous web browsing experience.
Available from the add-on bar, this tiny helper will make sure your identity is completely concealed when using one of the virtual ones it comes with. With anonymoX you can choose a different identity with a single mouse click and offers several services you can opt for.
This Firefox add-on redirects all requests send by your browser when you are trying to open a webpage in such a manner that they cannot be traced back to you. This means that the hosts will not receive any information from your end, thus ensuring you remain truly anonymous.
With anonymoX you will be able to enjoy all your preferred websites, without having to worry about your activity being observed and traced by third-parties interested in serving unwanted advertisements or collection personal data without your consent.
Given its great ease of use, anonymoX is clearly an add-on for everyone, advanced and less experienced users alike. The security level it provides is more than sufficient to ensure that, for Firefox users at least, personal user data remains private, while making little compromise in terms of browsing speed.
