Browse Safely and Securely with UltraSurf
UltraSurf is a free proxy service software, developed to allow users inside countries with powerful Internet censorship to go to any public web site freely and safely. If you are not located in any of these countries, you can still use UltraSurf to keep your real IP address and secure your privacy. UltraSurf is a standalone program and does not require installation. It automatically sets Internet Explorer or Firefox to utilize UltraSurf each time you run the program and it shows a lock icon on the desktop to specify that anonymous surfing is active.

For Mozilla Firefox users you need to perform the following steps first:
• Launch Firefox window and go to Tools->Options->Advanced link->Network
• Choose the ‘settings’ option under ‘connections’.
• Next, choose ‘manual proxy configuration’.
• Fill out the boxes with this- HTTP Proxy = 127.0.0.1 and Port = 9666
• Check the box – ‘Use This Proxy Server for All Protocols’
• Click on ‘OK’ to exit and that’s it!
Note: A number of antivirus and antispyware applications flag UltraSurf as being infected/malware, despite the fact that the program is perfectly safe and does not present a threat to your computer. This is what we call ‘false positive’. The term false positive is used when antivirus program mistakenly classifies a harmless file as a virus. The wrong detection may be caused by heuristics or by a wrong virus signature in a database.
I recommend UltraSurf to anyone who is in need of a fast and free proxy to browse the Internet.
