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.

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