OperaTor: Surf Anonymously and Bypass Internet Censorship

This is a piece of software bundle that could help folks bypass Internet Censorship, particularly in China (They call it Great Firewall), Iran, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates etc. Off course, anyone can use it to surf anonymously through the web.

The software bundle I'm going to write about is called OperaTor, which is a combination of the Opera browser, the anonymous TOR network(Onion Router) and Privoxy which lets you surf secretly.


First of all, it is easy to setup (no installation required). Just download it, unpack the file and use. At present, OperaTor is Windows only.
According to their website, OperaTor can be easily installed on a portable memory (pendrive, usb stick, hard drive) .
So you can copy OperaTor in your pendrive or usb stick, go to a cyber cafe, library or any other public computer and surf anonymously. No data will be stored in that public computer.
You just have to use Opera as you normally do and the other two applications will run in the background.

Torpark is another browser that is very similar to OperaTor and which supports anonymity on the web using the same Tor network.

Where can I download this bundle?
For an anonymous web interface or to surf the web anonymously in complete privacy, away from the eyes of hackers; I always use Hotspot Shield free VPN software ( http://www.anonymousbrowsingsurfing.com )
