Anonymizer Nevercookie strives to protect you from privacy-invading browser “evercookies.”

It can be confusing to use Anonymizer Nevercookie at first. Install it, and then launch Firefox. When you launch Firefox after you’ve installed Nevercookie, a Choose User Profile screen may appear if you haven’t used Firefox profiles previously. That screen appears because when you use Nevercookie with Private Browsing, a temporary profile is set up for each browsing session as a way to protect your privacy. If you don’t want to see the screen appear every time, select the “default” profile, check the box next to “Don’t ask at startup,” and then click Start Firefox.
Anonymizer Nevercookie is more a proof-of-concept than anything else at this point, because it doesn’t integrate into your normal browsing sessions, and works only in Private Browsing. Still, if you’re worried about evercookies, and are willing to browse the Web in Private Browsing mode, you’ll find it useful.
