Security & Privacy Apps & Plugins
The PRISM scandal over the past few days has ignited a media firestorm as well as a debate over the relative merits of freedom and anonymity as opposed to security and surveillance in online. The post-leak backlash has resulted in a boom for websites and companies such as DuckDuckGo that provide anonymized online services like search, instant messaging, and more. There's even a cheekily named PRISM Break website, created by Peng Zhong, which details a ton of options for programs, operating systems, browser extensions, and open-source options that can be implemented by users concerned about online privacy and anonymity. You don't have to be a cypherpunk or cryppie to take advantage of some of the anonymized browsing and encryption tools out there!
