Hi Xnefoo. Could I ask you to be a bit more specific. I mean, your ISP can tell where you travel on the internet by your IP address. I'm not sure if that's what you mean or something a little more cloak and dagger.

They could if they had a specific reason to, but this reason would have to be like they suspected you were a terrorist or something at that level. Otherwise, you're talking about millions of user's and billions or trillions of web site. It just wouldn't be practical. I don't know if there is any software you can get that will tell you if they are?
