I want to use proxy for a little privacy on the Internet. I have read a few information and have several questions. I know a little that there are two methods to attain anonymity in the Internet surfing.
First is to use CGI/proxy script on my own computer or through remote servers such as http://anonymouse.org.
The second one is using proxy servers.
So the first question is what is the most effective and secure way to implement anonymity on the Internet (what stages of anonymity I can attain by different means)?
How to prevent a probable collection of my information by my Internet provider? I suppose it can collect it through its servers which I use to go out to the Internet.
And the last one is can it be that when a proxy server is used a holder of the server stores and uses my information from requests? How to prevent this? And how to find a reliable and secure proxy servers?
