JAP makes it possible to browse the Web anonymously and unobservably. JAP uses a single static address which is shared by many JAP users. That way, neither the visited Web site nor an eavesdropper can determine which user visited which Web site. Instead of connecting directly to a Web server, users take a detour, connecting with encryption through several intermediaries, so-called mixes.

Release Notes: Users of TOR (another popular anonymizer service) are now able to use JAP as a software access point. JAP now solves the problem that governments of many non-democratic states (China, United Arab Emirates, ...) are blocking Internet access to AN.ON for their people. By activating the new AN.ON peer to peer forwarding technology, JAP users are now able to donate a part of the bandwidth of their anonymous connection for other Internet surfers to defend the freedom of the World Wide Web.
