[Update 9.4.06: Is Browzar adware? Not that I can tell.]

A new browser, called Browzar, lets you surf the Web without leaving any tracks on your host computer. It keeps no cache files or browsing history and deletes any cookies you accept when you close it down. Better yet, the program is tiny — only 264KB.

This makes it ideal for lawyers who use computers other than their own, whether in an Internet cafe when traveling or in another lawyer’s office. You can keep the executable file on a thumb drive and surf without fear of leaving a record.
