Several people in previous threads had asked for tips in improving
security and privacy protections. Electronic Frontier Foundation has a
nice writeup, simple (not simplistic) and concise and with references,
about search privacy.


EFF also supports tor, referenced in item #6.


If you want to use tor with the Firefox browser, you may want to get and
use the "SwitchProxy Tool" extension. This makes it fast and easy to
select or de-select the tor servers (and privoxy proxy) at any moment's
notice. (No pain, _big_ gain.)

Hope this is helpful to some.
