By reading the title itself , you can understand that anonymox is a service that hides your true identity and allows to acess websites blocked in certain geographical locations, such as HULU available only in USA/UK.
Also you can find that several software promotions or software freebies are restricted to only US/UK ip’s, to acess them , you need to buy either a VPN or search for free proxies.
But in my experience, I found several difficulties with free proxies as their IPs change often, sometimes you have to spend a lot of time searching for the right IP of free proxies and if it is a good free proxy addresses, the service will be overcrowded that will seriously slow down browsing.
anonymoX will put an end to all these troubles , this free Firefox addon provides fast and easy anonymous web browsing.So that you can access GeoIP restricted websites easily and at that same hides your real identity from internet giant Google.
This app will be bypass many sorts of blocking methods by using a virtual Identity and best thing is that can change the IP and place with only a few simple clicks without having to use proxies. This add-on works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
