Kepard Review (April 2014)

Some VPN servers with Kepard even allow P2P traffic, which means you can use torrents anonymously, downloading and uploading as much traffic as you wish.

8 VPN Services Reviewed (April 2014)

Anonymity is much desired nowadays with government spying and ISP logging. It's important to secure yourself with a VPN so you can bypass issues like that and have a fully secure Internet browsing experience.

Because VPN services encrypt and secure your data, it also masks your identity to make it seem as if you're accessing the web from a different location. This means you can access blocked websites like Hulu, YouTube, Facebook, Netflix, and many others. If your ISP blocks torrents, for instance, a VPN service can bypass the restriction.

Anonymous Torrent Downloads: Some of these VPN services allow for anonymous torrent downloads. See this huge list of torrent websites to find one to use with a VPN.

Below is a list of VPN services, in no particular order, updated April, 2014. Let me know if you find any incorrect information or would like an additional service listed.

Top 6 Web Browsers

A web browser is absolutely essential for visiting websites, but which one should you use?

While there are more browsers available than I've listed here, I find these to be the top Internet browsers you can use.

If you'd like me to look at a different one, send me an email.

1. Chrome

Chrome is the free Internet browser offered by Google. It has one of the most easiest to use interfaces, supports a ton of add-ons called extensions, and can sync your customizations across multiple platforms.

Chrome can be installed to Windows, Mac, and Linux computers. A mobile app is available for Android, iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices.

If you sign on to Chrome on more than one desktop via your Google account, any pages that are currently open, as well as bookmarks, apps, passwords, settings, history, extensions, and themes can be encrypted and synced across the different Chrome installs.

Private browsing is supported in Chrome under incognito mode, which is a portion of the Chrome browser that doesn't keep a log of visited pages, downloaded files or cookies once the incognito page closes.

Multiple users can easily access Chrome on the same computer by setting up different accounts that each have their own bookmarks, preferences, extensions, and other personal touches.

Chrome can also be installed in portable form from PortableApps.
