anonymous web surfing
There are alot of sites that say they will do this for you but how safe are they?
Are they a one time deal, meaning do you have to go to them everytime you want to do the surfing or do they take over your browser and do it everytime you bring it up? If so then they get to spy on ya right?
I would like to know alot more about how to do this.

This is interesting, I'll look into it.
As for web searches, instead of using google try one of the search engines that don't look at what you search at all, such as cuil.com

They work by providing a proxy so that all your requests seem to come from somewhere else. Some of them randomly change the IP they use for you as well.
Are they truly anonymous? Not really; if they were then your pages wouldn't find you so if someone really wanted to, they could trace you.
Can they spy on you? Of course; why should they be any different to anyone else on the internet?"I used to be with it, then they changed what it was.
Now what was it isn't it, and what is it is weird and scary to me.
It'll happen to you too."
