If you want to maximize your privacy online and keep others from observing your browsing habits, you should definitely check out AnonymoX. This add-on works with Firefox to allow for browsing that's fast and anonymous. The AnonymoX add-on regularly receives praise as a great tool that can ensure online privacy. When you enable the AnonymoX add-on, you will be able to choose a random IP address, and cookies on your browser will be deleted. Also, your public IP address will be deleted from view.

Although similar programs that hide an IP address are difficult to set up and sometimes make down browsing slower, this is not the case with AnonymoX, which is simple to find and easy to implement. When the add-on is downloaded for Firefox, a random "identity" will be automatically enabled. The user can specify his or her general location in the AnonymoX icon and indicate whether the IP that is enabled should be a US, Asian, or European IP.

AnonymoX enhances secrecy by providing a random IP address and also warns users when their browsers pick up cookies that should be deleted. Although AnonymoX can be very useful to those interested in more online privacy, there are some drawbacks to using the add-on. One of the most common complaints regarding AnonymoX is that the add-on lacks flexibility and does not offer a great deal of options when it comes to interface configuration. However, the simplicity of the add-on makes up for this lack of flexibility in some ways. While the add-on works quickly in general, there are certain locales where users might notice slower browsing when using the AnonymoX add-on.
