      "It might offer a solution. Hard to tell exactly how good it is for anonymous browsing as it's nearly impossible for me to actually gauge. The other issue is tradeoffs from a current browser, particularly my indispensable plug-ins."

    WHAT’S THE MEANING?

    When a person is browsing the web anonymously, it means that his or her personal information are hidden from the websites they visit. This can be done by hiding or changing their IP address using VPNs, using a proxy server, or by disabling cookies, plug-ins, and anything else that can be used to identify and track down a user.

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Did you know that websites use cookies to track a user’s activity? Cookies are useful for things like storing information, so users don’t need to re-enter them and gathering statistics about which browsers are visited the most. Over time, cookies can be used to develop a profile that can serve as a digital fingerprint. However, cookies can also be used by servers to provide ads that are based on the person’s browsing activity. Using cookies, advertising companies can show the user ads that are targeted to their interests.

    Cookies also help with government surveillance. Against their will or completely unbeknownst to Internet users, government agencies can track and keep information about its citizens. Surveillance can have its pros, as the government can monitor whether or not a citizen is committing or participating in a crime, and they can track any activity that they deem suspicious. However, the data they are using is not always legally obtained, causing a debate to flare up between the government’s invasion of its citizens’ privacy and the government’s responsibilities to maintain national security.

      "I use the Tor Browser so nobody can track me. I feel much more secure and safer when I use this. The government, or anyone else for that matter, does not need to know what I do on the internet."

      "I think that this is a decent browsing system. They provide great features that will be significant to the functions of the app. I also really like the in-app video portion because I enjoy watching videos. I enjoy using this app because I constantly check many of my confidential information such as medical sites and this proves this without breeze. This is awesome for people who value their privacy. The only suggestion that I would like is to have options for other languages. Right now, they only allow English and Swedish. Overall, a great app."

      "Its a big deal for me to stay anonymous online. I just don't want my previously visited websites turning up again in a different browsing session. This Tor browser is a perfect resource for anonymous browsing because it lets me to use Tor on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux without needing to install any software and is portable."

      "Checking out this page is a must if you are worried about your privacy on the web. I was so sick of surfing a website, and then getting tons of spam about every topic I looked up. Plus, with all the things people can do on the web today there is no privacy anymore. Very informational, and it is kind of scary the way companies can get so much information about you, so it's worth a look at how to surf the web anonymously."

      "Epic Privacy Browser seems to be a great resource for blocking anyone or thing that maybe tracking you online. While many, if not most of us, are regular ordinary internet users we still hate the thought that someone is following our every move to figure out how and what to sell us. You also have the websites that are, well, embarrassing to be caught viewing if your mom happens along. On this website it offers solutions as well as programs to prevent this type of thing happening. There is plenty of information about who and what they are as well as how they have been reviewed."

      "If you're looking for a different Android browser, this one is good. It's similar to Firefox, which is my favorite desktop browser, but it offers more privacy. It does have some issues, such as not being able to screenshot, but it's alright."

      "Fast and smooth, this browser works way better than Chrome does and it is also available for Linux Mint it's about the best browser I have seen. It is a very fast and quick, unlike Firefox. Regarding anonymous browsing, it still does have you sign in to all the sites so I'm not too sure how effective this really is."
