MacXware has released WebGhost, a new Mac OS X utility that helps users remain anonymous when visiting Web sites. It costs $29.99, and a demo is available.
WebGhost hides your computer’s IP address by redirecting your Web connection through a secure private proxy server, according to the developer, thus masking your identity on those Web sites you visit. This, in turns, keeps advertisers, hackers and others from infiltrating the security of your computer.
Tools included with WebGhost help Safari users erase Web browser history, block pop-up ads, clean the Web browser cache, and clears cookies and downloads.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.4 or later, 128MB RAM and 10MB hard disk space for installation. WebGhost is a Universal binary. The license fee includes a one-year subscription to the private proxy server.
