Bypass Great Firewall of China; Watch Hulu

Are you worried about people snooping on you while you're surfing the web?

Maybe you're at an office and the IT department has locked down your favorite time sucking website. Or maybe you're at the airport, or a coffee shop. Or more so, maybe you're living in China and a site you frequent has landed on the government's list of no-no sites. In that case, what would you do?

Enter Hotspot Shield by AnchorFree. It's a little application that frees you from firewalls and content censorship. It even allows you to watch Hulu outside of the U.S.

For those who already know of HotSpot shield, you may know that it displays a little ad on your browser--but it's easily disabled. However, a small ad is a tiny price to pay to able to reach the content you want, when you want, where you want.

Check out the little app here.

    mrubermonkeySo I take it Tuan has never heard of a proxy before. Its really simple. In Firefox go to Tools->Options...->Advanced->Network->Settings...->Manual proxy configuration:Then enter your HTTP Proxy and Port and you are good to go. Google up some proxy lists and you can surf without the need for ads. Or maybe this is just another Tom's advertisement for some service right. Hope they pay well.


    i may not agree with tuan's mac articles from time to time but you sir are being a douchebag.

    But quality proxies are hard to find. This application assures you'll have an US ip and is reasonably fast.
