Freegate 7.40
An easy-to-use anonymous browsing tool

Freegate provides a simple and straightforward way to browse the web via anonymous proxies, so hiding your location from websites and perhaps allowing you to bypass local restrictions on the sites you can view.

There's nothing to install, and so no chance of Freegate messing up your network settings; just launch it, and after a brief one-time setup the program will connect to a few proxy servers. It will also open a browser window at a Chinese-language website (Freegate is aimed at internet users in China, though it works elsewhere as well), but there are no other marketing or adware hassles. Enter some other URL and you can browse more or less as normal.

As with most similar tools, we found a few performance issues. There were several occasions when pages took longer to load than we might have expected, or froze for a moment. For the most part, though, the program worked very well.

If you want an easy way to bypass some IP-related restriction for general browsing, then, Freegate is ideal. There's no way to tell how secure your traffic might be, though, so we'd recommend you turn the program off before doing anything sensitive or password-protected (shopping, online banking and so on).

Verdict:

A simple and straightforward proxy tool

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
