<IMHO>I think that has to engage ten more people, who
only have to laugh and rotate on the floor, because of the users who
use their 'service'.

Yes, they don't give the client's identity to other servers, but
they can record user profiles for a whole WWW-session, not only the
behaviour of a user on one Website.</IMHO>

I suggest to be careful with such services, it is much more safe to
anonymize by yourself.

You can use Squid for this, You can switch the compile-time option
USE_ANONYMIZER on, and Squid will strip a lot of headers from your
