GhostSurf 2005 Standard lets you customize your privacy settings in real-time to suit your surfing needs. GhostSurf also routes your data through anonymous hubs, masks your IP address, and encrypts your Internet connection. GhostSurf’s TracksCleaner component protects your privacy by erasing your Web history, cache, cookies and more to Dept of Defense standards, and prevents even aggressive hardware recovery systems from retrieving your deleted files. GhostSurf’s Privacy Control Center allows you to see and block every piece of data that your computer emits over the Internet. GhostSurf allows you to exclude selected Web sites from your privacy settings to permit sites that require personal information, like online banks or Web-based e-mail programs, to access your information while all other sites obey your selected privacy level. GhostSurf works with all Web browsers and supports anonymous instant messaging, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), and news feeds.
