A little known trick in Windows '95 is that you can hide the task bar. Simply right-click on an empty part of the task bar and choose properties. (Or: Click Start; Click Settings; Click Task Bar) Choose the auto-hide option.

Now, unless your mouse is over where the task bar would be, the task bar can't tell on you if your boss stops by. Just open up your normal work program(s), then connect to the Internet. Maximize your work program and then run your browser. If you press ALT-TAB, you will switch to another application. Make sure that when you travel from your work app to your browser it's as quick as hitting ALT Tab to switch to your work. Then, after he leaves, resume browsing.
