    It is supposedly a way to surf anonymously, but it seems many websites will not fully display when I tried it. You have a proxy option, but many sites didn't work with the proxy. Any thoughts, or some better way of surfing?

    Run Firefox from your thumbdrive with the portable app version. You will leave nothing behind on the local PC.

    If you're looking for a way to strut around the internet anonymously check out the Tor project, be aware however, that anonymity is only available at "most" sites, some simply don't allow it to work properly.
