About Anonymouser

Anonymouser is a Firefox plugin that allows you to surf anonymously to links easily.

This plugin is great for surfing to sites that you don't want to have your personal information, or for people that are not in "free" countries to access parts of the web they normally might not be able to (such as blogs).

After you install the plugin you will notice two new menu items when you right click a link:
Open with Anonymouser
Open with Anonymouser in New Tab
(Please Note: These two new menu items will only show up if the link starts with "http://", it does not work with ftp/https/ect. type links to prevent bandwidth abuse and unsecure transfers)

The first one will open the link in the current window, the second will open a new tab.

This plugin doesn't anonymize anything, it instead uses anonymouse.org (visit the site to see how it works).

In the future I may make it so you can change the site that is used... but I'm pretty busy and it works now so...

(Side note: Rapidshare tutorial removed, it seems they've wised up to proxy downloads, sucks for us!)

Comment 1: Thank you for your comments

Comment 2: With no coding experience thre's not a whole lot you can do. If you're any good with graphics design then I could use a logo haha. The only other option is a) learn to code or b) donate, and I am not accepting donations.

Answer: No, sorry it is not. One of the wonderful things about Firefox is the ease of extending the functionality.

Try using http://www.vtunnel.com/ or http://www.backfox.com/ instead of anonymouse.

Less ads.

I have a suggestion. How about when you right click on a tab to show its context menu, you add an entry to 'reload with anonymouse.org'?

...Are you telling me this plugin doesn't actually do anything unless you open a link with right-click?????

That is correct that it doesn't do anything until you click a link.

If you want to always be behind a proxy then use the browser's proxy settings.

To be honest, I have no idea if it even works anymore as I have not continued to develop it due to lack of time.

I didn't say anything about proxies, and neither did you. You said this will make browser history unaccessibe to advertiser's. But after reading the links I figured out I didn't want to do that anyway. IF you're going to get a cupon, and uyou're a gamer and therefore visit gaming sites, woiuldnm't you rather get a cupon pop-up for GameStop (targeted) then tampons (untargeted, and maybe you're male or on menopause)? Thanks for replying.

Well, that is basically what the service that my extension offers: web based proxy.

Generally, I don't care if I'm being "tracked" as to what types of sites I go to, however when the extension was developed, you could download multiple files from online storage sites such as rapidshare.de by using this concept.

The main reason I left it available after the sites wised up to it was because I got a lot of emails from people in countries that had "limited access" of the internet. By using this site (as a proxy), they were able to visit news sites worldwide they otherwise were not able to.

Sorry if this extension doesn't seem to do what you want it to, but if you tell me what you're looking for maybe I can point you in the right direction. (Please note, you only need to post once, comments are moderated due to spam, they don't show up until I approve them)
