Privacy is always the name of the game when you're surfing the Internet. No one wants to think that sites are saving personal information for them to use to make more money from you. Unfortunately many sites do this. Browsing can also complicate things when you live with other people. If your browser saves a lot of information, then the people you live with can access that information and dive into your personal life. UltraSurf is a tiny application that is designed to prevent this sort of invasion of privacy from occurring.
Your history that documents everything you look at online can be wiped clean, and the cookies stored for various sites are erased after you're done browsing. The application works for all of your browsers, but most importantly it's compatible with Internet Explorer and Firefox, two of the most important browsers around.
A USB memory stick is all you need to get the application running smoothly. Monitoring its progress can be difficult, however, as there is no clear alert to let you know that it is properly erasing the information it says it is. It's necessary to check routinely to see if it's working if you want to get the most out of the application.
There are some minor problems with browser compatibility and there were times when the browser became unstable while running the program, which can cause unwelcome interruptions to your browsing experience. It's important to weigh the risks of this program with the benefit. While it's a completely stable program in terms of security features, the browser interference can sometimes make it frustrating to use. It's a free program so it will be worth it to most folks that want a simple way to erase their surfing tracks after they're done enjoying everything the Internet has to offer.
