China: Getting Around GFW with Hotspot Shield

Granite studio introduces a new tool called Hotspot Shield to access websites filtered by Great Fire Wall.


  • I could not put my comment on Granite Studio’s blog (my proxy does not allow that), but in my opinion this service sucks in a major way. First, it slows down all the online processes and actually caused by computer to crash. It also stopped all programs that I had running to communicate: Skype, Gtalk, MSN, Facebook, Google Readers.
    I kicked it off right away.

  • I actually like the programme; it’s fast and has provided access (except so far to when ultrasurf stopped connecting. BUT I notice all the images on my blogspot site keep getting mixed up so the image in one entry will be replaced with another which is a big problem especially for me which is a visual site.
