    Sorry, if this is in the wrong section...

    I just tried this, and it still shows my IP addy and location.
    It says that in private surfing my service provider and employer
    still see web pages I surf .. So, why even use it?

    I have something else that is not showing my location only
    that I am using firefox and windows 7, but it keeps changing
    my IP from Russia to Netherlands to Norway .. Poland etc

    This doesn't seem good if I want to work on one account

    Can't I just take one of these IP addys and manually put
    it in so I can work on one account then change it to another
    for another account and so on?

    I think I remember where it goes .. now let me see...

    OK, so I am guessing these ips are proxies :-/

    Why can't I just take one and put it manually in and us
    them for each of my accounts?
    They are obviously working ones. Right?

    What happens, if I put someone elses IP address in manually?
    It won't work right? Just something I was wondering about

    Private surfing means that nothing is registered on the hard drive that you are using, that's all -- no cookies, no cache files, no temporary files, etc. If you want to hide your IP or to prevent your computer from sending certain information, then private surfing is not for you.

    Private surfing is basic (ie. you are using a shared computer, and don't want people to see the history of the sites you visited). It won't help you stay anonymous, because your ISP can still see your traffic. I suggest a VPN depending on what you are planning to do.

    My plan is to take over the world.
    Will a VPN help me in getting this done? ;)

    damn! I been reading all this too, I just forget
    it all when I go and try it

    I really have to stop getting side tracked with BBing stuff

    OK, I am sticking with this site for at least a few days
    without getting into anything else

    Thank you,
    John
