Torpark browser offers anonymous surfing

Posted on Sunday, Sep 24 2006 @ 12:10 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Torpark is a new modified version of the Portable Firefox browser that offers users to surf the Internet anonymously.
The Torpark web browser, created by a group called Hacktivismo, can operate from a USB thumb drive, or some other type of portable storage media. Hacktivismo is composed of hackers, lawyers, human rights workers and artists from around the world.

Users will be able to access the Internet through The Onion Router, a network of servers that are designed to send data to one another in a fashion that is difficult to trace. The goal behind the Internet browser is to allow for people to browse the Internet with anonymity at a time when new technologies continue to gather personal data without permission.
One of the downsides of anonymous surfing with Torpark is that it dramatically slows down the websites you're loading. Learn more at DailyTech.
