Hola Better Internet for Firefox (formerly Hola Unblocker)
Hola Better Internet for Firefox is a simple yet effective extension that seamlessly integrates within your browser and provides you with access to sites that are unavailable in your area, such as Hulu, Pandora, Netflix or YouTube, to name but a few.
Regional restrictions’ justification
Sometimes, for security reasons, certain countries block the access to various apps and websites as a result of their strict policies.
Hence, if you travel abroad very often and want to watch your favorite Netflix TV shows or listen to your Pandora radio stations, you surely know that the availability of these services is limited in some countries.
Access country-restricted websites in Firefox
By using Hola Better Internet for Firefox you are able to remove the area restrictions imposed by websites such as twitter.com, travelchannel.com, oxygen.com or aetv.com. This way, you can make your Internet better by loading sites faster, play videos with less buffering and reduce your data usage.
When you try the access some of the sites listed above, you might get the ‘Sorry, the current service is not available in your country yet’ notification. However, with the help of Hola Better Internet for Firefox, you can view the service’s popularity in the world and change your location accordingly. Then, you can access the website with ease.
The addon manages to do this through a VPN service that helps you bypass the limitations imposed by such web services. This way, you can change your location and surf anonymously, simultaneously shielding your identity and preventing tracking attempts.

A powerful browser-relient VPN utility
To wrap it up, Hola Better Internet for Firefox proves to be a steady solution when it comes to accessing restricted online services such as Pandora, Netflix or YouTube; it impacts your system resources only slightly, so you will not even notice it is there.
