    FreeGate

    Freegate is a proxy software for Windows that can also run under WINE on Linux or MacOS.

    Freegate is made by Dynamic Internet Technology, who I read about on FoxNews. They also run web proxies like dongtaiwang.com.

    These guys "get" proxy marketing in a way that most of us here are just failing to understand it. These guys are paid by Voice of America (VoA), Radio Free America (RFA), Human Rights in China (HRIC), and the EpochTimes.

    I think the lesson here is that proxy owners should get political and promote themselves as defenders of free speech and enemies of censorship. Long term, I believe that is a far more effective message than "Get on MySpace from school."

    The U.S. Senate directed the State Department to spend $30M in taxpayer dollars this year to "support digital tools for undermining Internet censorship." Those dollars (if they are approved in the final budget) will go to someone with political connections in the Obama administration -- not to schmucks like you and I.

    The U.S. government is drawing power into itself like a black hole sucking in small planets. Playing this game the right way will make proxy owners look like good guys, working to fight censorship and defend free speech in other countries. Playing this game the wrong way will make proxy owners look like bad guys, helping pedophiles and other undesirables to avoid getting caught. If we market ourselves as bad guys, the government will eventually come down on us. If we market ourselves as good guys, they might even give us some taxpayer dollars to waste.

    I've been using Tor for the same reason for quite a while now and it has never let me down.

    Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location. Tor works with many of your existing applications, including web browsers, instant messaging clients, remote login, and other applications based on the TCP protocol.

    Its actually funny Will is that the "unblock myspace at school" Proxies are the only reason why there is so many proxies in the first place, which are used by those in China, Iran etc If the owner hasn't blocked them. Becuase its profitable with the US traffic from it. Without that there would be only a few select proxies run by organizations getting funding, Of rouces those would be easy to block anyhow. Since they would so few of them, it would be easy as pie to keep track of them right?
