I am very interested in supporting projects and software that promote privacy and security.  I just discovered Vidalia, which is a cross-platform GUI for Tor and Privoxy.

Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allow network traffic to be sent securely and privately around the internet.  Privoxy is a web proxy that blocks cookies, and removes ads.

Using Vidalia is very easy.  All you need to do is launch the program, and configure your applications to use a local port as the proxy.  It is even easier to configure Firefox to use it.  Torbutton is a Firefox extension that provides a button that will toggle whether the browser has the network traffic routed through Tor.
