Understanding The Most Secure Firefox Add-on – Cocoon

Posted: 19 Jul 2011 01:59 AM PDT

Basically, Cocoon helps you surf the entire Internet via a proxy. This helps the user to use the Internet without revealing their IP address to the World Wide Web. This can be confirmed by validating your own IP addresses with cocoon enabled and when it is not enabled. They will be different!

How does Cocoon look like?

Well, Cocoon installs itself as a toolbar in your Firefox. The add-on can be turned on or off by using the universal button on the left of the toolbar. Cocoon also offers the lock/unlock and pause button right next to on/off button. You might find it a bit difficult to edit settings as the drop down that offers edit settings feature isn't easy to spot.

Mesmerizing features of Cocoon.

Cocoon is bound to grow due to some of the amazing features that it brings to your Firefox browser. Here, we will jot down some of the lucrative ones:

  • As already explained, Cocoon hides your IP address and you start using Internet via a U.S. based IP address. Just enable Cocoon and note down your IP address and then disable Cocoon and validate your IP address again. This can help Netflix users watch video from outside U.S. as Netflix blocks content to non-U.S. based IP addresses.
  • All the user data is stored in a cloud and can be accessed by the user only via a secure connection. The downside of such a feature could be the risk behind your password being compromised. Once your password is compromised then all your browsing information will be available to the user who has your password.
  • Cocoon comes loaded with unlimited on-demand e-mail "mailslots" that will keep your e-mail address private to the outside network. The mailslots feature will let you create a new email address for a new account registration. The user behind Cocoon can create a temporary email address that will be deleted after the user is done with its purpose on the particular website. One temporary email address cannot be used for two different website logons.
  • The anti-cookie feature of Cocoon protects you from stalking advertisers. This is somewhat similar to Internet Explorer's tracking protection.
  • Cocoon has a note-taking feature using which users can type notes as and when they visit the Internet. The notes can be used for future references.
