ChrisPC has released the latest edition of its free-for-personal-use online privacy tool, ChrisPC Free Anonymous Proxy 5.50.
The upgrade seems to have concentrated on the fundamentals, now extending the anonymous proxy list to 1,000+ from more than 50 countries.
The company claims to have improved and optimised connection speeds, in particular for proxies in USA, UK, France and Germany.
The ad blocker and privacy scripts have also been improved, although as before the free version only allows their use for 30 minutes (you’ll need to spend $14.99 on the Privacy Add-on to remove this restriction).
The filters are disabled by default, too – click Privacy and Ads Blocker and check “Activate…” if you’d like to give them a try.
The Expat addon, which enables access to geographically restricted sites like Hulu.com, Netflix.com and BBC iPlayer has also been improved, and there are the usual scattering of minor improvements and bug fixes.
ChrisPC Free Anonymous Proxy 5.50 is available for download now. Just look out for the adware – it can all be avoided, but you have to pay very close attention during setup.
