Anonymous browsing with JAP


When it comes to anonymous Web access, Tor is not the only fish in the sea. If you are looking for a lightweight utility that allows you to navigate the Web anonymously, JAP is more user friendly.

Similar to Tor, JAP sends a user's Web page request through multiple intermediary servers called mixes. Unlike Tor, however, JAP uses a predetermined sequence of mixes called a mix cascade. According to JAP's documentation, because each mix cascade handles multiple connections, it's virtually impossible to trace a particular connection to its user.

When using JAP, keep in mind that this tool alone can't guarantee 100% anonymity, simply because there are other ways to obtain your IP address -- for example, through cookies or JavaScript scripts. This means that if you want to achieve maximum anonymity, you have to plug other "holes" as well. The good news is that JAP provides detailed information on how to do this (more about it in a moment). Linux.com :: Anonymous browsing with JAP
