Mask Surf Standard
Mask Surf Standard is a software program which allows you to anonymously surf the online environment and to clear web browser data. It can be easily installed and configured.
This tool can also be installed as a portable product. In this case, the Windows Registry does not receive new updates (minimizing the risk of system errors), and no files are left behind on the hard drive after program removal.
Moreover, you can store Mask Surf Standard on a USB flash drive or similar storage unit, and directly run it on any computer. Plus, you can carry the tool in your pocket whenever you're on the move.
The app supports Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari and Mozilla Firefox; you can select one or more web browsers to apply security settings to.
So, you can obtain a list of countries and, together with their IP, you may create an inclusion or exclusion list to be used when you want to anonymously navigate the web; Mask Surf Standard may take a while to create this list, and this task cannot be paused or canceled.
Furthermore, it is possible to configure speed settings by creating a slow relays list, use OS, browser and language masking, as well as to select the Tor mode (client only, relay, bridge) and to view logging details. From the Settings screen, you can edit proxy properties, switch to a different language for the UI, and make the app automatically run at system startup.
Mask Surf Standard uses a low amount of CPU and system memory, but it did not work smoothly during our tests. The app randomly hanged several times, and it even caused Mozilla Firefox to start experiencing issues (e.g. it was unsuccessful in its attempt to reload webpages). Other than that, Mask Surf Standard packs some interesting features for online security, but they are mainly oriented toward power users.
