Worried about online privacy? Epic Privacy Browser designed to cover your tracks

Epic_privacy_web_browserA new web browser hopes to keep your online tracks as anonymous and private as possible.

No, it's not a Chrome plugin or the latest version of Internet Explorer – the browser we're talking about is called Epic Privacy Browser.

Hidden Reflex has released the web browser at a time when many people are concerned over the privacy of their information online, thanks to the NSA and its co-operation with various tech giants and even governments, like our own.

According to PC World, the Epic Privacy Browser won't accept any third-party cookies and it'll block tracking cookies. It also won't send any traffic data to search engines.

It'll also block ads, because, it might as well do that too since everything else is being protected.

In another twist of added security, Epic Privacy Browser also sends all your searches through different proxy servers so nothing can be tracked back to you.

Not only will you be more private and secure online, Hidden Reflex CEO Alok Bhardwaj told PC World that websites will load faster since several tracking cookies can bog down web pages.

If you're doubting the stability of the Epic Privacy Browser – don't. It's actually built on the Chromium platform, which is the same thing Google Chrome runs on.

Would you download this super private web browser so you can stay anonymous and secure online? How important is your privacy to you?
