    :) Hi pretender! Good to see you again! I've been sniffing Naviscope 8.70 for a couple weeks now and I still have not found it phoning home like v8.69. Do you think they took the hint and deleted that feature?

    My Naviscope works pretty well. Blocks most ads, hides my system info and referrer. I've checked around on the Net and only a few places, mostly in out-of-the-way countries, are providing d/l's of v8.69. If you go to their homesite it says it's v8.69 but you actually get v8.70. The homesite is 216.157.91.36 (I've got that memorized!)

    BTW, I'm still learning how to do sniffing, so the above are not final results. General results only.
    Do you know something about Naviscope that we don't?

    I also use 8.70
    Development and support has been stopped, that's why you no longer see posts.

    Very easy to set up and use.
    With IE:

    Make sure that in the Block & Filter you check both
    Hide Last Page Visited (referer) ---------------Privay setting
    Hide System Information (user agent)----------Security setting. That setting alone will make you secure against PC AUDIT (3.0.0.3) !
