SSH, with SOCKS tunneling (and the FoxyProxy extension with Firefox, although I normally use Google Chrome). Works on Windows/Mac OS X/Linux. Note that this doesn't necessarily fix DNS sniffing and whatnot.

If I was paranoid, I'd bother to set up a VPN and use that.

If I'm extremely paranoid, I use Tor (which may have some security concerns).


  network.proxy.socks_remote_dns to true
in about:config for Firefox to do DNS requests over SOCKS.

Thank you!!!
