Cocoon is a very easy to use but useful Firefox add-on designed to make everything you do online secure, private and virus-free.
Without Cocoon websites and hackers have access to your computer to leave cookies or infect it with viruses and malware. You even get protection on open Wi-Fi access points.
Cocoon makes the Web a better place by eliminating viruses, putting an end to spam, protecting your privacy and keeping your browsing all in one place.
The VWC Cocoon add-on is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.

Here are some key features of "VWC Cocoon":
· Privacy - Cocoon protects your privacy letting websites and advertisers see only Cocoon computers, not your computer. Your privacy is protected from companies compiling data based on your browsing history and selling it to the highest bidder.
· Security - If you're cleaning viruses and malicious software (malware) from your computer, it's already too late. Traditional anti-virus solutions deal with the problem after it has reached your computer. The Cocoon solution is to block & scan files you download for malware before it can infect your computer.
· No Spam - Part of Cocoon protecting your privacy is protecting you from spam. Why should you give your email address to every website that asks for it (or keep track of multiple email accounts)? Cocoon let's you create email addresses on the fly and lets you easily manage or delete them.
· Portability - Cocoon lets your online experience go with you from computer to computer. When you log into Cocoon, you always have access to your previous browsing history. Never again will you have to try to remember what that website was you visited on another computer, or have your login info for a website saved only on your work computer not your home computer.
