Hello everyone, new to the forum. I do all my websurfing at free wifi locations. Like many on wilder's, I am a privacy idealist, and hate the fact that the websites I visit are tracked no matter how innocuous they are. My goal is to surf using HTTPS and encoded url's whenever it is possible. I like to use ixquick as much as possible with their proxified search results under encoded url's. I also have my cookies shut off when surfing. My question is... how protected from "sniffing" and MITM am I when browsing under HTTPS with encoded urls using highly anonymous proxies? I realize doing email and flash and logins are different concerns , so I like to concentrate on WEB SURFING ONLY for now. Thank you all and am looking foward to learning a lot on wilder's. this is my browser setup: Firefox Portable with cookies disabled and cache set to zero. extensions: noscript, ghostery, betterprivacy, addblockplus (easylist+easyprivacy+malwaredomains), HMA proxy ext, and a few more.
