With government agencies like the NSA or GCHQ actively keeping track of the sites you visit, a new Chrome plug-in called Paranoid Browsing will allow you to create a false browsing history with little effort on your part.
Many organizations attempt to build a profile of you based on your browsing history. Paranoid Browsing confuses that effort by browsing the internet randomly in the background.
PB currently browses the "standard American" set of web pages, but you can easily modify this to look at ponies, go carts or whatever else you want profilers to think you're interested in.
Note: Since Paranoid Browsing clicks on links randomly, you will get a lot of pop-ups. I recommend having a dedicated window for PB.
