Surf anonymously with iBypass

We all know that surfing anonymously nowadays are just simple tasks configurable via our favorite web browsers. Incognito browsing in Google Chrome makes this possible leaving no trace whenever the browser window is closed. On Internet Explorer 8, InPrivate browsing makes it an easy task by simply pressing Ctrl+Shift+P on your keyboard. With Firefox 3.0.12, you may need to set-up the Private Data options under Privacy Tab from the Tools menu in order to get rid of browsing history.

While the steps I’ve mentioned above are pretty easy, I stumbled upon iBypass which works as a proxy site for accessing blocked websites. It has nothing special to offer thou since for major offices, majority of productivity stealing sites are blocked. The site can only be appealing to naughty kids who are willing to do just about anything in order to penetrate a parental website blocking software. However, I haven’t tried using such kind of software so I’m not sure if it can also block proxy sites that will show prohibited content.

The intriguing fact about the site is the iBypass Gold software being offered free. Well, there’s really nothing to celebrate about it being free because you can’t install it to your office or school where computers are shared. The advantages of the software is that it loads web pages pretty fast (that I wish Firefox 3.5 could be as fast too), no pop ups or annoying ads, a claimed unblockable access, and a screen changer which can be configured easily to show a desired page just in case somebody walks into your room and you don’t want to expose the page you’re viewing. Other than these positive features, I just could find any compelling reason to adopt this software.

    Hi Karen,
    Thank you for leaving your first comment.
    I’m not pretty sure if the links to iBypass is still working. I used to have the link attached on this post but I had it removed since I found out that it’s no longer working.
    I’m still currently checking on Google to see if there are means that some of its links still exist.
    Let me know if you ever run into some useful ones so I can put it back on the post.
