Unblock Sites - PirateBrowser

PirateBrowser is seriously meant to provide internet users the freedom from national censorship by letting its users browse and download anything they want. PirateBrowser is based on Tor network and uses Firefox portable browser base to create a stable web browser which can unblock any website censored by the agencies. According to the official PirateBrowser site:

"PirateBrowser is a bundle package of the Tor client (Vidalia), FireFox Portable browser (with foxyproxy addon) and some custom configs that allows you to circumvent censorship that certain countries such as Iran, North Korea, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, Italy and Ireland impose onto their citizens." -

This month PirateBrowser has reached a milestone of 5 million downloads. Also the company has given statements about future updates on the browser which means there is more to come.

While PirateBrowser does NOT provide anonymity to its users as expected from its Tor base, the main difference between Mozilla Firefox and PirateBrowser is that using the latter you can unblock almost any website censored or blocked by your network administrator, the government or any agencies.

Downloading & Getting Started With PirateBrowser

PirateBrowser can be download from any of the three methods which are:

2. Installing & Using PirateBrowser:

Using PirateBrowser is very simple. All you need to do is run the auto-extractor and give it the required path where you want to save the contents.

How To Install & Use PirateBrowser

Next, open the extracted contents folder and run 'Start PirateBrowser' every time you want to start PirateBrowser. Yes it does not install anything on your PC, you have to run the program that's it. No installation.
