bonjour!hata-ph,

thanks!just installed ...
i'm fully aware that vector developer make contributions at their precious spare times, but vidalia and polipo and tor should be the default tools when next release.especially under the current rising censorship from authorities, malaysia /singapore/thailand're worse, estonia plus indonesia and philippines 're more free
but with polipo, there's prompt:

No, you can't "hide" your IP address beginning at your connection. The Internet doesn't work that way.

Vincent2,

What does polipo do that google chrome incognito browsing doesn't?  Is polipo more secure?

Polipo is nothing more than a lightweight proxy. No more, no less.
