    i'm wondering if this YouTube browser called MiniTube has potential as an app that allows somewhat anonymous usage of that site? the author said it doesn't place any cookies and my guess (am no programmer) is that it doesn't use any kind of Flash, or Java or Javascript so maybe all that's left is some form of HTTP headers(?) for them to track/profile a user?


    unfortunately i don't have any kind of program that allow me to view headers or requests sent by a program. Any help on that and any thoughts on this program? the Linux version is free and seems to be portable, the Windows and Mac versions cost a few bucks (not much, ~$10 U.S. iirc)

    maybe a program like this could be expanded to allow other sites like Vimeo, etc and if the HTTP headers or requests info given are relatively few, it might offer anonymous browsing of these sites.
