ChrisPC Free Anonymous Proxy
Browse anonymously at the click of a button

Setting up an anonymous proxy is generally a very effective way to maintain your browsing privacy, but it can also be a complicated process. Unless, that is, you get some help from ChrisPC Free Anonymous Proxy, which makes it as easy as clicking a button.

Just about everything happens from a single dialog, and the main option you might want to consider there is choosing your preferred proxy country. There are 50 possibilities, from Argentina to the USA, or you can simply accept the default "Random Country" setting and see what happens.

Once you've sorted that out, though, all that's left to do is click "Connect to proxy". ChrisPC Free Anonymous Proxy will then find a proxy server for you, modify your settings to use it, and you'll immediately be ready to surf with your new identity and IP address. (Although it may be wise to restart your browser, just to avoid potential problems.)

This all worked just fine for us; we were given a French IP address and could then browse as normal. Browsing speeds were a little slow, but you can always try connecting to another server. And the program also allows you to selectively activate the proxy for, say, just Opera, so you could use that only when necessary, and turn to another browser when performance was important.

ChrisPC Free Anonymous Proxy won't (for the most part) allow you to watch TV from sites such as Hulu, the BBC and so on. The developers have produced an Expat addon which they claim will do the trick, though - it's yours for $14.99.

Please note, ChrisPC Free Anonymous Proxy attempts to install additional free software during its setup process. There's lots of it, and you need to do different things to avoid installing each one (click Decline here, Skip there, clear some checkboxes maybe) so read each step carefully before clicking "Next" or "Finish".

Version 5.85:
    - Improved proxy connection for UK and Germany proxies.
    - Other minor fixes and improvements.

Verdict:

ChrisPC Free Anonymous Proxy provides a quick and easy way to locate and use anonymous proxies. Their performance can sometimes be poor, though, so this may not work for everyone.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
