Browzar leaves no tracks (on your PC)

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 4:34 pm

A new browser, Freeserve’s Browzar, leaves no tracks. It’s a very small application (only 264K) that uses the Internet Explorer engine on your Windows PC (versions for Mac and Linux are in development). When you use Browzar instead of IE, nothing that happens is recorded — not your Web history, not data you type into forms or search engines, and not Web site cookies (they’re deleted when you close the application, along with your session’s page cache). What happens in Browzar stays in Browzar.

Browzar doesn’t even need to be installed into Windows. The downloadable file is a self-contained application. It can also run directly from a USB thumb drive.

However, Browzar is no security panacea. It does not stop your ISP from recording what you do
