Anonymous web browsing aim at hide the users and information fetched from web hosts and other parties [4]. Anonymous surfing can pledge the privacy information or some identifiable information will be encrypted or hidden to induce the tracking process become more arduous. For example [5], users receive some medical information and advice from the website.
