How to surf internet / orkut without being caught

Whatever you are doing on internet is recorded by the server with your IP address. And ISP knows which IP address is used by which user (or cybercafe). Thus with the help of ISP and website (ie, google, orkut, yahoo, rediff, etc) Its quite straight forward to locate the user who posted questionable content on internet.

But with little efforts, and cautiousness, you can surf online, surf orkut, post scraps, upload pictures, without being caught. This is called anonymous browsing.


When you go online, you leave tracks all over the place. You could be hanging out with friends on IM, checking out websites, or do
