Surf safe and anonymously

TOR has been around for a while. If you’re not familiar with it, it provides a pretty high level of anonymity to your internet use by routing all your network traffic through the TOR network. You sacrifice speed as the tradeoff, and for daily use most folks probably won’t want to use this unless they’re highly suspicious. There are plenty of contexts where you might prefer to remain anonymous however, and here’s a great solution to that – Torpark, a small (less than 20MB) package you put on a thumb drive. Take the thumb drive with you and when you’re in a circumstance where you feel like you’d rather do your surfing anonymously, launch firefox (included with the package) from the thumb drive and all your traffic will get routed through Tor. Simple, free, safe, and effective. Unfortunately it’s also win32 only, at least for now.
