Internet Explorer privacy keeper - NeatSurf

NeatSurf is a freeware privacy tool for Internet Explorer that prevents writing your browser's history, cache, cookies, user data, etc. The tool is especially useful when you using a public computer for surfing the internet. Because, unlike other browsers, IE handles these data differently and basically it is difficult to wipe out. So this tool ensures your privacy by preventing other people from seeing your data or which sites you visit.

For example, if you are using a cyber café or any public computer to buy something over the internet, or entered any other sensitive information into the web browser's window, you cannot be absolutely sure that this information is not cached somewhere. NeatSurf is designed to protect you in such situation.

NeatSurf is a portable application and has no interface. Just download and run NeatSurf.exe. It will start an instance of Internet Explorer (no matter whether IE is your default browser or not) and continue to run until IE browser is closed. It supports Internet Explorer 5 – 7 and Windows 2000 and XP.
