- The Anonymizer

Every time you visit a site, you leave a calling card that reveals where you come from, what kind of computer you have, and other details about your identity and viewing habits. Most sites keep logs of all your visits. In many cases, this keeping of records may violate your right to privacy. Now, Anonymizer provides more than just anonymous web surfing. Anonymizer E-mail gives the world easy-to-use access to high security anonymous e-mail. Stay tuned for new services, right around the corner: anonymous web publishing under United States free speech laws, anonymous dial up in hundreds of major U.S. cities and Canada! Secure protection of your Anonymizer connection, and large-scale licensing of the Anonymizer server.
