I surf the Net regularly for info and news and don't touch P2P nor porn. I have nothing to hide, just that I value my privacy and do not like the idea of someone snooping into my personal details. With the recent regulated "snooping" by the government and companies, I was wondering about the feasibility and effectiveness of using a private webserver which is SSL enabled, and installed with CGIProxy. ( eg. get a webhosting account so that I can installed CGIProxy on a password protected directory, for my own personal use) Products like xB browser, TOR, Anonymizer, etc may be good, but then we need to put our trust on third parties - people whom I do not know and hence need to trust them that they will not bow to pressure and give out our data in future. Hence, is it effective to use CGIProxy on a personal webserver with SSL installed for the purpose of privacy and surfing anonymously? What's your opinion?
