Freegate is an anti-censorship application that provides Internet users with secure and unrestricted Web access. The software claims to enable users to access websites hosted overseas as fast as local ones through scanning for multiple proxy servers during browsing and connecting to the fastest ones.
Freegate operates as a single executable file on the Windows platform and does not require any installation or system configuration. Users only need to double-click on the executable file to start using the application, which takes advantage of a wide range of proxy servers to allow users bypass Internet protocols that block websites using proxy network systems. Users can set the application to stay hidden in the system tray so that it does not pop up on the desktop or taskbar.
