My non-offical project supports [1] that. Java and Flash do not leak IP
or DNS.

There is some protection against hardware fingerprinting as well. [2]

Remaining issues (flashcookies, which can track you across multiple
sessions and so on) are also documented. [3] Don't hold your breath for
fixing the remaining flash issues, I am certainly not going to do it.
That would require a flash rewrite with privacy protection (project like
gnash, which isn't a big success yet).

You can build such system also from source or manually build it, it's
all documented.
