JonDoFox 0.2.6: More Security for Web Searches and SSL Connections

The JonDos GmbH has published the new version of the JonDoFox anonymous browser software.

Online PR News – 15-September-2010 – – Regensburg ( onlineprnews ) September 13, 2010 - JonDoFox is both a profile (current version: 2.4.0) and an extension (current version: 0.2.6) for the popular Mozilla Firefox web browser. It protects the user's privacy while surfing the web. As it is open source software and free to use, it is an ideal add-on for anonymization services like JonDonym and Tor, but may also be used without anonymization tools.

While illustrating the launch of the new software, Mr. Wendolsky, CEO of the JonDos company, exclaims, “The new version of JonDoFox integrates a slightly enhanced version of the popular Firefox extension „Certificate Patrol“. „Certificate Patrol“ checks all encrypted (SSL-) connections to web pages whether their certificates have changed since the last visit. Thereby it is easier to see whether third parties try to sneak into the secured connection (man-in-the-middle attack).”

“Furthermore, JonDoFox provides more security for the search bar of Firefox: Automatic search suggestions are disabled so that the data cannot be sent to search engines before the input is complete. Moreover, the input in the search field is immediately deleted after the search query is finished. As, in addition to that, the search history is deleted every thirty minutes, it is not possible to reproduce the searching process. This also protects from a glance over the shoulder”, he adds.

On startup of JonDoFox, an information page is now shown which shortly explains the numerous security features of the software. JonDoFox 0.2.6 as well as the JonDoFox profile 2.4.0 are compatible to Firefox 4 beta 4.

The JonDoFox development team is happy to present you the new version of JonDoFox! Enjoy it! And rest assured of the anonymity of all your browsing data.
