Psiphon has power to knock down the Great Firewall of China

2 05 2009

China employs more than 30,000 people who monitor Internet connections, e-mails and chat sessions of civilians.  Popular services such as Wikipedia, Youtube, iTunes and many others are blocked.

Psiphon Inc. […] launched a service on Friday that allows people in China and other nations with government censorship of the Internet to get around the firewalls.

The service called Psiphon is not the first to try to crash through Internet censorship in countries such as China, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, but it is the first to require no downloads by the user.

More significantly, it’s the first to work on mobile browsers, such as those on cellphones.
