There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required.
