Opera isn’t exactly most folks’ browser of choice but recently they added a free virtual private networking (VPN) feature which will not exactly make your browsing completley private, but will add an additional level of protection by makining Web site thing you’re somwhere else in the world than where you really are. It doesn’t give you the ability to pick where your traffic gets routed, but it is a simple on-off with absolutely no configuring necessary. If you want to give it a try, just head on over to www.opera.com, download the latest version and activate it under Settings | Privacy & Security.
