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.
