What software should I use/purchase to protect my privacy on the internet?
(I'm sure this question has been asked before, but in my archive searches I couldn't find an answer in plain English that I could follow. Feel free to send me the link to any previous discussion on this!)

In my ideal world, I could easily look at any website I wanted and no one would know that I had done so. Also, I'd like my email to be private and read only by the person I'm sending it to - although I understand that this is complicated by the receiver's security set-up). Finally, I'd like any downloading I do through BitTorrent etc. to be known only to me.
Is what I want even possible?
I know that there is a product called Anonymizer out there, but I don't know how it works or if it has a good reputation.
Sadly, I have a hard time following very technical explanations of this stuff, so the simpler your feedback for me, the better.
