    Default Anonymous Web Browser

    Hello everyone,

    I am new (somewhat) to Java but not new to programming. I have an idea for a web browser that hides information about the user, ie. history (for obvious reasons =] ). If anyone would like to help or even has an idea of which direction to go in please post a reply or email me at [email address removed]

    Thanks.

    I may be stupid, but I don't understand the obvious reasons or the intended pun. What/whose information must be open to who?
    And what information are you seeking. Just how to make a browser in Java? Then I just know that there's a spelled out example in the Deitel books and/or in the O'Reilly Nutshell examples (for a very basic rudimentary browser).

    Show your efforts and post explicit questions on specific problems you met to get more helpful help.
    (And why are you posting under "Applets"?)

    Google Chrome and Mozilla FireFox already have an anonymous feature. Are you talking about something different?

    So does Opera. But our OP wants to create
    a web browser that hides no information about the user
    ;)

    @OP

    Did you edit the first post by removing "no"? Now my answer looks silly. Please make corrections by making new posts, not by editing old ones.
    (Ofcourse you can edit, but don't change the whole meaning.)

    I think the idea is that when you close the browser, it will delete all files it stored during the session, I.E. cookies and files. If you made a browser getting it to remove any files upon close would be the easy part. There is the inherent problem with this type of browser in the fact that it does not prevent web sites from retaining your information when you visit their site. Therefore, there may a bit of a false sense of security that there is not a record of your activity.

    I was confused by the question but guessed that he meant a browser that would not have a history of what was browsed.

    @zaricpp: It's customary for people who post questions on forums to participate in the discussion, not just come back and edit a typo thus reversing the meaning, and vanish.
