Shiver me timbers and other pirate-related cliches! The Pirate Bay has
introduced the PirateBrowser, a tasty blend of Firefox and Tor with some
snazzy add-ons that circumvent anti-piracy measures around the world.
As a 10-year anniversary present to its users, the Pirate Bay team
created the Pirate Browser to get around censorship measures in
countries as diverse as Germany, Italy, the UK, Malaysia, China, almost
all of Scandinavia, and India, to name but a few.
Microsoft chat services and Facebook also block the sharing of Pirate
In a blog post, the team writes,
Do you know any people who can.t access TPB or other torrents sites
because they are blocked? Recommend PirateBrowser to them. It.s a simple
one-click browser that circumvents censorship and blockades and makes
the site instantly available and accessible. No bundled ad-ware,
toolbars or other crap, just a pre-configured Firefox browser.
The browser won.t give you Tor-class anonymity for all your browsing;
it.ll only take care of the search results censorship.
The Pirate Bay, which prides itself on its resiliency, has had more than
its share of legal woes over the past couple years in particular. Its
hosting situation has been a game of geographical Whack-A-Mole, with
North Korea currently providing virtual asylum to the service.
I wonder if it has spyware built in..
