No matter where you go or what you do on the Internet, you're leaving your footprints behind. When you visit a website, that site's server is logging your visit. And for that matter, your browser is keeping track of it as well, writing an entry to your browsing history. Yeah, if you're some creepy cyber-stalker you don't want that, but there could be other reasons as well, like maybe you're checking out the competition before applying for a job there.

HideMyAss! is not a site that specializes in stealth donkeys; rather, they offer various services that let you leave fewer tracks behind as you tool around the 'Net. They've got a web proxy that you can use to visit sites without revealing your actual IP address and any other identifying information. Along with that, they have a regularly updated list of public proxy servers that let you connect to other types of services (Email, etc.) while cloaking your info. They've got an anonymous email service, so you can set up one-time-only addresses for sites that require email info to create an account. They've even got a link anonymizer that you can use for links you put on sites you control that masks the who and what of those links, and an anonymous file upload and share area as well.

It won't cost you anything to use HideMyAss!, and you don't even have to register if you don't want. It doesn't rely on any fancy technologies, so you should be able to use just about any browser on just about any system to take advantage of this free service.
