VPNs, or Virtual Private Networks, aren't the only way by which to browse in privacy with security online, evidenced by the Tuxler program for Windows PC, which allows users to change their IP address on any browser.
Overview of Tuxler
Browsing in privacy with security is something that's important for many PC users. Not only because of potential hackers and other data breaches, but also because nobody wants prying eyes spying into their internet habits. A great way to get around the prying is to set a new IP address with your browser, and Tuxler is a program that does this automatically, instead of having to dig deeply into the proxy settings of one of your browsers. This automatic process is quick, reliable and safe.
Tuxler is a small program, only 4.6mb in size, that was created by the SpartanCoders company. It is compatible with Windows versions XP, Vista and 7, while it also might work on newer versions, and it is completely free to download and use, but that's only the small 10mb version. The full version will cost you money. Overall, it's an effective program for what it offers.
How Tuxler Works
Digging into a browser like, say, Firefox and changing its proxy settings requires you to go get an outside list of proxies and also have enough know-how not to knock your connection out. With Tuxler, everything here is automated and you just push a button. This is a Windows program that truly makes it easy to browse privately. When you launch the program, it will give you your nation of origin, and your current IP address. You simply choose the location where you want your new IP to be set, with the “On” switched in its position, and click on your new IP. It's that simple.
The great thing about this is that there is no learning curve, and there are also no confusing features that will complicate things. So it's not as if you'll push on a tab and mess everything up. All you have to work with is an on-off switch and a list of current IP locations.
There aren't a lot of features to go over wit Tuxler. Perhaps its best feature is its universality. Whether your OS's default browser or any other that you download to use, this program was designed to be compatible with it. And when it comes to ease of use, you cannot beat the fact that it's as simple as clicking on the location of your choice.
However, not all of your IP destinations will work for you. Some of them will be off limits to you, unless you fork over the money for the paid version of this program. But you can still use it for free and connect to some new IPs.
