It seems as though everyone and their dog is making an internet browser these days. Now another browser, ingeniously named Browar, has been released to the world. Yet this one comes with a difference, nobody will ever be able to see what naughty or embarrasing sites you've been looking at.

The browser's homepage describes the new product like this:

With Browzar you can search and surf the web without leaving any visible trace on the computer you are using.

Browzar is free, it only takes seconds to download and you don’t even need to install it, so you can download Browzar time and time again, whenever and wherever you need it to protect your privacy.

* No browsing history, stored files, or cookies
* No embarrassing search auto-complete
* No installation. Just click ‘run’ and go
* No registration required

From clicking the download button on the site to actually running the browser was a matter of seconds. It's a very simple design with a sleek black or silver look. Being a Mozilla user though, I felt a little bit naked with the limited options.

Privacy has been in the limelight recently, after the AOL slip up a couple of weeks back. Now it seems everyone is jumping on the 'protect my privacy' bandwagon, which is a timely coincidence for this new product. Surely though, questions must be asked about people being embarrassed about their auto complete; is this the browser of choice for perverts?

With plans to increase features within the browser the question must be asked would you like a browser that keeps your search data private? Let us know in the forums.
