Now, people in 'internet-censored countries' can use web through friends in free ones

London, Oct. 31 : People who live under oppressive regimes will soon be able to browse the web using the internet connection of friends living in countries that do not ban using the net.


Google has supported an idea that lets people use the internet connection of a friend in a non-censored country.

According to New Scientist, in partnership between the University of Washington and non-profit firm Brave New Software, uProxy lets users share their internet connection with friends on social networks through a browser extension.

Under the new plan, after both parties have the uProxy extension installed, one can copy an encrypted link through the other person's browser and use the Internet via their social network connection.

The move will not just give people access to censored content, but also could allow people in the UK to watch the US version of Netflix via a US friend's connection.

The plan has for now been tested among selected users.

Censors cannot stop uProxy just by blocking social networking websites because, instead of the standard web, it accesses the contact lists via background, hard-to-block online processes.
