"Go Away Cameron" - Anti Censorship Chrome Extension Launched

This looks like something useful to those in the UK  :yes:

The UK's anti-porn firewall is now mostly erected. Two major ISPs have already put the opt-out-only system into use. As is to be expected. The system is built to be ratcheted up and as the government decides other search terms and websites aren't worthy of public attention, they too will be added to the blacklist.

Just days after UK ISPs began filtering porn at government demand, a simple Google Chrome extension highlights the futility of trying to censor the Internet's naughty bits. The extension, dubbed "Go Away Cameron," simply utilizes a proxy to get around the filters.

The creator of the extension previously made a version to bypass web blocking in his homeland, Singapore. This extension isn't specifically targeted at any blacklist, which means it can also be used by anyone in any country, as well as by employees looking to circumvent web blocking implemented by employers.

According to the creator, Go Away Cameron is a private, smart proxy service that engages when blocking is detected. He also claims nothing about the end user is collected or saved, including the IP address.



Another useful chrome extension for some folks that I read about recently :lol:
