Firefox: Downloading Free Access Plus!

Firefox is said to be having problems to attract money and compete with the IE of Microsoft, which pours lots of money to keep their browser running. Even when Firefox doesn't offer technical support for the enterprise circle, the add-ons are one of the most strongest arms Firefox browser does have.

It's been over one month in the playground of the add-ons for Firefox , and today has more than 35 thousands downloaded. Its name is FreeAccess Plus! (download [Windows, Linux] and use it at your own risk , not before reading some of the reviews). But why is so important and why in such a short time this utility has received such a large number of hits? Well, if you take a look at this map built up by the Global Voices Advocacy, you can easily notice that many countries had banned the Internet access and that's precisely the point, this add-on allows Firefox to work as a proxy and bypass censorship of YouTube, del.icio.us, Flickr, Technorati, FriendSter, livejournal, MySpace, Hi5 and even some other Persian (farsi) sites in Iran and other countries where they decided to blocked these sites ...

The note has been taken from GVO(Global Voices Online) and according to the article, the add-on author, MohammedR has said, current version of FreeAccess Plus! does not support the option to add websites to those currently listed. However, this feature — an editable and configurable list — will be added in a future version of the program.
