I'm looking for a VPN provider to encrypt my communications. My main objective is to get secure communications while 
being able to search on the web, read and create content and, most of all, can get my IM/IRC traffic secure.

Any suggestions?

Please excuse my possible ignorance, but I don't understand why you need a 'provider' for a VPN. I use OpenVPN on 
Linux, and I think it can be installed on other platforms as well. It's free. And if you're using Cisco or Juniper 
routers/firewalls, they will create an IPsec VPN. That's also free, once you pay for the box. The ones around here 
will, anyway...
