Although this isn't an Eraser-involved question, you guys know tons.

Can ISPs view logs of websites visited by their users?

Yes. All they need to do is look at your DNS lookups.
You are probably using your ISP's nameservers for DNS service.

That would also include your FTP accesses, P2P connections, SSH, etc.
Anything you use DNS to turn a host name into an IP address.

No cookies necessary. Pretty nifty, eh?

Your ISP is the real owner of your marketing data on how you use
the internet. Don't think for a minute that AOL, Earthlink, MSN,
your cable company, your phone company, and the three-letter agencies don't already know this. They are highly likely to already be selling this data to "business partners" or "related entities", all perfectly consistent with their so-called "privacy policy".

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that they aren't out to get you.

Which is why, rather than using a proxy server, I recommend running a utility that does contant "fake" DNS lookups. These utils run in the background, and during idle time, perform a slew of DNS lookups that you aren't really carrying out for actual purposes. The idea is the same as flooding spammers' email lists with phony email addresses; if your ISP sees you resolving every IP address under the sun, how are they going to make any sense of it?

Better yet, use an app. that encrypts all you outgoing info. from your browser through the ISP to a proxy server. Must be a server that then also sends all you web request back to you encrypted for the app. to decrypt local.

That way the ISP doesn't know where you're going, what you're doing, and what you're downloading.

Secure surfing?

The quick and easy way,is to use a site like:
https://www.megaproxy.com/_secure/
which provides an SSL secured(as when you use a credit card on a reputable site) proxy. It`s free for limited use,and only they(note!) could presumeably check on what you do online-so doing something illegal might be a bad idea!

Can't help but have a chuckle at all of this. So what are we talking about here, heh? Pr0n sites, downloading some warez. Sorry but when people start talking about this sort of thing, I can just imagine them getting all paranoid about looking at the Jenna Jameson website behind their missus' back, and feeling the need to wipe out their tracks before she finds out :wink:

Can't help but laugh at this:

>>>The free service is supported by advertising banners selected in
...
>>material may be displayed in Megaproxy™ PrivacyToolBar:

So Megaproxy allow you to visit sites but fills up your PC with banners and spyware!!

If true privacy is what you need then you have to secure both ends of the communication. The ultimate question being can you trust the target server.

Naturally you are considering NoTrax as the browser and Snugserver to be the server :wink:
