Surfing Safely with SafeWeb

Tired of having your boss know which porn web sites you are surfing?

If you are, then check out SafeWeb, which acts like a big proxy server. You send your traffic to SafeWeb (encrypted so the boss can't read it) and then it goes and fetches the URL you wanted. SafeWeb then "sanitizes" the page, striping out those annoying pop up windows and neuters other "misbehaving" web pages. Encrypts it all and sends it to your browser for viewing.

It requires Java and version 4 or newer browsers. It tried Opera, it choked. Not sure how well it works on Linux based browsers. They claim that they are making their money by sliping in a small ad at the top. There are serveral levels of security that are adjustable.

Of course, if you're truly paranoid, then SafeWeb probably won't help. After all, if you're sending ALL your web traffic through SafeWeb, who's to say that they aren't monitoring you. This could be the like the greatest NSA trap ever.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
