There is always Tor, and privoxy

what about privacy in Tor? i have used it for some time but i dont
feel confident using it specially when i am sending my personal
information out. What do you people have to say about this?

TOR doesn't keep the contents of your network traffic private - just your
IP address.  There was a thing on full-disclosure a while ago about someone
running a TOR node and capturing all of the exit traffic.

You need to use encryption if you want to keep the contents of your network
traffic private.
