A usb stick is still writable. If you really wanted to be safest you can use something like Knoppix which boots from CD, it cannot be altered by anything. It's a "fresh" install on every boot. I keep a copy around in case Windows decides to die so I can access files.

Although that breaks a lot of sites. I personally prefer Firefox with the Ghostery add-on, since Ghostery is more of an automated script + 3rd-party-site blocker.

Tails (The Amnesic Incognito Live System) - another Linux distro. Use YUMI or any applicable multiboot software to boot Tails from a USB stick.

Then again, who knows if it wasn't the NSA or some other snooping agency that created this?! :-)
