New tool for getting under the China Cybernanny’s skirt?

Maybe — check it out. It sounds quite promising.

UPDATE: On the other hand, the Accelerator may have serious drawbacks.

Interesting. It’s sort of like how you used to be able to get past the GFW by using the google cache. IIRC, it took the censors a long time before acting on the google cache. But I wonder how many people in China really will use this to get around the GFW.

The download page was firewalled already, I downloaded a version from pconline but after trying it It seems to show pages much slower than before (took me half a minute to open pekingduck which usually only takes around 10 seconds), but it does get around the firewalls, although not quite as fast as UltraSurf (a programm simular to google’s accelerator but is much faster, the only drawback I found so far is that it openes an anti-china webpage when run so I can’t actually advertise it openly on chinese sites)

I use Ultrasurf and it works OK. Trouble is when the gov’t blocks ALL foreign websites at my school and I can’t access these servers. Also, I’m paranoid one day the gov’t will block these servers. I don’t even know how it works as it’s all in Chinese!
