Reblog Warning: DO NOT use Anonymouse.org as a Web Proxy

Anonymouse.org, despite its claims, doesn't work. I have been playing with an IP tracker tool on my new blog, and I experimented this morning by hitting my site using a few popular web proxies to see how well they hid my information.

 

I was shocked to find out that Anonymouse.org doesn't even work! However, Zfreez.com and iphider.org worked as advertised.

 

Zfreez.com

worked perfectly. It displayed as if I was a visitor from France. I recommend it.

IPhider.org

worked perfectly. It displayed as if I was a visitor from Florida. I recommend it.

Anonymouse.org

did not hide my information at all. In fact, it announced that I was using 'anonymouse.org' as a web proxy. A complete fail.
