How to Browse Without a Trace with an Ubuntu Live CD


No matter how diligently you clear your cache and erase your history, web browsing leaves traces on your computer. If you need keep your browsing private, then an Ubuntu Live CD is the answer.

The key to this trick is that the Live CD environment runs completely in RAM, so things like your cache, cookies, and history don?t get saved to a persistent storage location. On a hard drive, even deleted files can be recovered, but once a computer is turned off the data stored in RAM is unrecoverable.
