UltraSurf is a must-have Internet browser/anonymizer which allows users to browse the Internet with complete anonymity. Without the need to install the program, you can fit it nicely on to a USB pen drive and use it where ever you go.
The program was originally designed to help users in China browse the world wide web without having to deal with the great firewall. Since then, it has grown and expanded to become a very popular tool for people wishing to bypass ISP or government restrictions on freely browsing the web.
UltraSurf includes access to an Internet browser and gives you access to a free proxy, making it possible to tunnel through the Internet without coming into contact with local or government firewalls. UltraSurf is currently compatible with Internet Explorer and Firefox, though when you run the program, IE will by default open up.
In the end, we were pleased to see that when we used it with Internet Explorer, UltraSurf was able to effectively encrypt all of our Internet activity completely free of charge and we weren't forced to purchase a VPN connection.
The other main feature of this privacy application is how it handles your cached data and any tracks you may have made while the program was running. Upon exiting the browser and the actual program, UltraSurf will completely wipe your computer of any browsing history made while it was running.
Given that it's a portable application, we highly suggest bringing this program along with you to cafés and anywhere your Internet connection might not be secure.
