There's been talk recently over private browsing features in upcoming browsers such as Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3.1 (Safari already has this feature).  Privacy, of course, is an important subject for many end users (despite the somewhat pejorative term "porn mode" frequently used for it).  Well, a new browser has been recently released that --- rather than making this feature an afterthought, focuses directly on privacy as the base of its capabilities.

Here's their press release:
Level 9 Technology, Inc. has launched the ArmorSurf
Private Browser - a free web browser & downloader that lets users
surf in complete privacy while keeping their files secure. In addition
to privacy features, the software comes with advanced download and
multimedia features, giving users the ability to download streaming
Flash videos, burn video DVDs, and export movies to an iPod.

ArmorSurf automatically encrypts and secures browsing history,
cookies, cache, auto-complete history, favorite websites, and other
personal data.  The program also includes an encrypted file manager
that stores all imported and downloaded files.  When the IP Masking
feature is enabled, the user’s surfing activities become completely
anonymous and untraceable.  


ArmorSurf can be installed secretly and a password is required to
gain access to the program. Panic keys immediately close the program
and a clever ‘forced confession’ feature allows users to set up an
alternate password that performs a different action instead of
launching ArmorSurf.


ArmorSurf comes equipped with numerous download and multimedia
features. The built-in download manager can save any file types,
including streaming Flash videos like YouTube, CNN, and Break.com.  
ArmorSurf’s media player burns video DVDs, exports videos to mobile
devices, and lets users set video bookmarks for their favorite movie
scenes.


Users can even install and run ArmorSurf directly from a USB key or an external hard drive, eliminating any traces whatsoever.


ArmorSurf has been awarded the highest rating by Tucows (5 Stars).

Summarizing, here are the highlights of the software:
  • A private web browser
  • IP masking feature [optional]
  • Secure media library and playlist manager
  • Flash downloader (downloads streaming videos from most sites)
  • Video DVD burner (works with all file types, including flash)
  • Built-in media player
  • Ability to install and run directly from a portable hard drive or USB key
