Firefox Extension to Browse As If You Were in China
China Channel offers a Firefox extension
for those outside of China mainland that aims to let you experience the web – and the Chinese web censorship – as if you were within China. Not sure how well this works at all times (for instance, I heard that sometimes different locations within China show different blocks). When I installed the China Channel add-on and then searched Google.com for falun gong
, I received a “connection interrupted” instead of the Google result page – without any doing of Google, I suppose, but based on the URL’s parameter with functionality coming from the Chinese Ministry of Information.
