Anonymous Browsing Toolbar produced by
Amplusnet is probably the best Internet Explorer toolbar that you could use to hide your IP. The new release (version 5.0) uses a lot of premium proxies from the US, UK, and Germany that make Anonymous Browsing an ideal tool for hiding your IP when browsing with Internet Explorer.
Anonymous Browsing Toolbar can be downloaded from Amplusnet site. The installation is straightforward (Next, Next, Finish). You will have to wait a little bit longer somewhere in the middle of the setup, but be patient. It’s all part of the process. 🙂
Then, open an Internet Explorer and activate the toolbar:
In order to start browsing with another IP click Enable button and choose a proxy. The proxy will be automatically tested and if it is ok you are done.
To check your new IP press “Check IP” button.
If you need more info regarding the way Anonymous Browsing can be used check this page.

– trial mode (3 days) while you can use premium proxies (high anonymous and high-quality proxies)
– free mode (after the trial period) while you can use free proxies (low-quality proxies) or your own proxies
– subscription mode while you can use gain the premium proxies.

Pros and Cons
As usual, when evaluating a product, I list several pros and cons of the product:
It does change your IP address (especially when using premium proxies)
Easy to use
Always at hand when browsing
It can be used as a free product
You can add and store your own proxies (taken from proxy lists sites like www.samair.ru)
The premium proxies subscription is quite affordable and available for 1,3,6 and 12 months
In the free mode, the premium proxies are not available
The free proxies are quite slow and mostly unusable
The look and feel of the toolbar is not always excellent
To sum up,
Anonymous Browsing Toolbar is the best hide IP toolbar I have tested so far. Not very good in the free mode (when using open) proxies, Anonymous Browsing is excellent with premium proxies.
