Use Tor to unblock Youtube

Torproject

If you want privacy and anonymity on the web from over hyper big brothers. If you want to unblock Youtube or other similar sites blocked by your government. If you want to see unfiltered and unaltered results from Google and other search engines that might be censored, then TOR is a great solution for your needs.

In their own words:

Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location.

Google Chrome for Linux is Out and we think it is Superb

Chrome for Linux is truly a superb product. Not only does it render the pages faster, as claimed by Google, but it is fast. This is interesting news for Firefox as so far on Linux it dominated the browser market share with Opera coming in a distant second. However, all that changes with Chrome with its nifty features making a home on all major Linux distributions.

It does seem to consume a bit more memory than Firefox (when the same set of websites are open) but since Linux itself does not consume a lot of memory, we have enough spare out there for it to use.

Firefox still has an edge when it comes to customized add-ons and extensions. Chrome does have a gallery of some impressive extensions but not as comprehensive a list as Firefox. So those, like me, who rely on those extensions for many tasks, will still take a while to switch to Chrome as default browser.

Even though it is still in beta, it is turning out to be a cool Internet user experience.
