Can't understand why a law abiding citizen would want to use such a browser. Surely you'd only use this if you had something to hide?

Good point, I have nil to hide but was looking at security of personal info. The latest on prism does not worry me

Why what's wrong with the right to privacy. I don't like the idea of security organisations doing the Big Brother on me.

I'll go and put the tin foil on me ead

Nothing wrong with the right to privacy! But if the authorities are out to get you and have you in their sights I doubt that using this type of browser will stop them spying or gathering information on you.

Fair point H, it might even be the CIA, NSA MI5/6 who have set up these so called secure browsers anyways.

I'm assuming that because you run your business online that you have a concern about fraudulent use of online accounts etc?

I reckon that you should look at web usage like cars or boats. You can buy/employ measures to stop people from stealing it, but if they really want it, they'll find a way of having it.

As much as I hate insurance, make sure your covered and use credit and bank accounts that protect against fraud.

The problem for authorities is there is too much data. By getting those that have something to hide using a 'secure' network, they can focus their attention. If I was any if the above organisations, that's what I would be doing.
