GProxy comes packing Firefox / Thunderbird extension (implement bar and status bar icon) that avails users to manage and switch proxy settings facilely. It fortifies GPass, FreeGate, UltraSurf, Garden, and other proxy systems, with Chinese, English, and Farsi interface.
Many users consider Firefox a more secure and convenient browser. However, when utilized it with FreeGate, UltraSurf, or Garden, they had to transmute its proxy setting manually, and invert the setting after use. GProxy aims to solve this quandary.
GPass offers gratuitous pass to innominate, secure, and unrestricted Internet surfing thanks to its highly advanced software that can encrypt your online data, obnubilate your IP address, and sidestep content filtering and monitoring utilizing a number of secure channels to connect to the Internet and break through the Internet blockade.
GPass fortifies the online applications that you utilize the most, including Web browsers (e.g. Firefox), multimedia players, email, instant heralds, download managers, and so on. Freegate is a software application developed by Dynamic Internet Technology (DIT) that enables internet users from mainland China, Syria, Iran, Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates, among others, to view websites blocked by their governments.
The program takes advantage of a range of proxy servers called Dynaweb which is mainly run by Hurricane Electric. This allows users to bypass Internet firewalls that block websites by using DIT's P2P-like proxy network system. FreeGate's anti-censorship capability is further enhanced by a new, unique encryption and compression algorithm with an estimated number of 200,000 users in 2004.
Ultrasurf was developed by Chinese dissidents as a means of allowing internet users to bypass the Great Firewall of China. It currently boasts as many as 11 million users worldwide. The tool has been lauded as "one of the most important free-speech tools on the Internet" by Wired magazine, and as the "best performing" circumvention tool by Harvard University in a 2007 study.
Although GProxy cannot be installed in newer versions of Mozilla Firefox, the community found a way to deal with this particular problem through GProxy Tool, an add-on that comprises GProxy and can also be installed within the latest iterations as well. There are still some issues to be fixed with GProxy and, as its development seized years back, they may never be resolved.
