What makes you think that there is a need to hide your IP Address when browsing the web? I usually hide mine when replying emails that contained sensitive information such as bank accounts, pins and etc. (I guess I am paranoid) I believe that prevention is better than nothing (or cure). We have many choices of software, right now I am currently using virtual private network hidemyass.com. We can also use proxy servers and etc.

You must be very social... I bet your IP is on at least one of the many other sites you posted this on:

And Hidemyass isn't the best choice, especially if someone is involved in internet protests. They gave up a LulzSec hacker as soon as they got a court order. No attempt to contest the order, just fold the cards and hand over his info.
