Surf the web with ASProxy
A Web Proxy is a service which allows the user to surf the net anonymously. When using a web proxy, not only is your identity hidden but you will be able to escape filters and firewalls from an internet connection.
Browsing the internet via a web proxy protects you by allowing the host machine (proxy server) to represent you on the net.
In most cases your job, school, or even your country may prevent you from accessing your favorite websites. A web proxy will circumvent this. Another benefit of using a web proxy is that it will often allow you protection against spyware and popups!
ASProxy is a free and open-source web proxy which allows the user to surf the net anonymously. When using ASProxy, not only is your identity hidden but you will be able to escape filters and firewalls from an internet connection. In most cases your job, school, or even your country may prevent you from accessing your favorite websites. ASProxy will circumvent this. The purpose of ASProxy is spreading freedom on the net, but this proxy can be used for any purposes. ASProxy is not responsible for your activities.
