    What good services can you recommend me?
    What are the disadvantages of anonybrowser.com? or such services?
    I've tried the 7 days free trial (require to give them credit card) by anonybrowser.com.

    Some useful discussion on commercial proxies can be found in the Could use some advice re: anonymous surfing and Proxy software and services threads. While they can offer better speeds, the fact that they need payment will always mean that they have some idea of your real identity, unless you can use a truly anonymous payment method (eGold being one possibility).

    Here's the thing about using credit cards on the net: yea, there's a risk of them being ganked, but as long as it's a reputable site, they're going to use SSL, in which case the risk is the same as someone pick-pocketing you at the store, a register operator using a rigged terminal, someone with a telegraphic memory eyeing your card at the supermarket, whatever. Besides which, you're not liable for fraudulent charges.

    There are a lot of dangers on the net, no question. There are also a lot of danger in the real world. If you let the predators scare you so much that you don't get the advantages of the net, then you've already been victimized.

    While SSL does guarantee the security of data in transit, it doesn't help when it comes to the security of the site itself from outside attack. Unfortunately there is no way for an end user to (legally) assess this, so if a company has lax data procedures, it is still possible for it to have credit card details taken. While there is certainly risk in the offline world, cracking an online site is going to be more attractive since it can yield hundreds or thousands of valid CC numbers.
    As long as you notice and report them in a timely fashion (though UK-based users are finding some issuers denying fraud claims, blaming the user, see Dispute Resolution Problems).

    There is however one way to protect yourself here, with "one-time use" credit card numbers that cease to be valid after the transaction is carried through. Cahoot in the UK offer this (via their WebCard service) and American Express offers it for US users (via their "Private Payments" service).

    Accept the fact that you can only limit privacy issues, and don't pay for that kind of service imo.
    Use open source programs/network like Tor, and only if you think you must.
    Total privacy does not exist, but you sure can limit exposure.

    Anomymous and paid don't compute in my head.
