It is known fact that the internet Giant Big “G” records everything from your IP address to the contents of every e-mail you’ve ever sent or received. Even if you don’t use Google search they can traceout which websites you are visiting with their immortal cookies or with their Java scripts.
They know who your are , who you friends are, where you live, where you work, and where you spend your free time. So you cannot hide from Google eye, but you can protect your privacy for some level with this tool called “Google Sharing”.
GoogleSharing is a partial proxy service designed to anonymize all your traffic. This firefox addon ultimately aims to provide a level of anonymity that will prevent Google from tracking your searches, movements, and what websites you visit..
The Best feature of Google sharing proxy is it sends all your requests via HTTPS , so your data will be encrypted. It generates pool of “identities,” each of which contains a cookie issued by Google and an arbitrary User-Agent for one of several popular browsers.
The Firefox Addon watches for requests to Google services from your browser, then it transparently redirect all of them (except services like Gmail) to a GoogleSharing proxy. There your request is stripped of all identifying information and replaced with the information from a GoogleSharing identity.
Now this information from Googlesharing is sent Google, then it’s response is sent back to you. In a similar way your next request will get a different identity, and the one you were using before will be assigned to someone else. So this mixing makes difficult to Google to analyze the real source or identity.
GoogleSharing is a system that mixes the requests of many different users together, such that Google is not capable of telling what is coming from whom. GoogleSharing aims to do a few very specific things:
- Provide a system that will prevent Google from collecting information about you from services which don’t require a login.
- Make this system completely transparent to the user. No special websites, no change to your work flow.
- Leave your non-Google traffic completely untouched, unredirected, and unaffected.
