Chrome and Safari leak IP address

Google's Chrome and Apple's Safari leak the user's IP address as a FTP test, recently implemented into our anonymity test suite, shows. Browsers based on WebKit seem to disregard their FTP proxy settings and fetch respective content directly. This is entirely independent of the particular anonymization service used. For instance, Tor users having Chrome or Safari as their browser are affected as well. Therefore, we strongly recommend to use a browser not based on WebKit, e.g. Firefox (with our privacy enhancing profile JonDoFox), in order to use the Internet anonymously.
