A NEW WEB browser that does not store cookies or other possibly-personalised data, claims to offer a safer way of surfing.

The makers of Browzar reckon the free download, which hitches a ride on Internet Explorer, is ideal for use on shared machines, like those in cybercafes or libraries.

The software doesn't require any installation and removes all temporary files when it is finished. It's the brainchild of Ajaz Ahmed, who made £1.65bn ($2.37bn) from the free internet business he sold to Wanadoo in 2004.

Says Ahmed: "Using Browzar, anyone worldwide can surf the Web privately in the knowledge that no-one will stumble across the sites they have visited when using the same computer."

This, he reckons, helps prevent the disclosure of sensitive information on shared computers and limits the risk of identity theft. µ
