Google Free Proxy

Google Free Proxy

Over at Google Hacks, Bigthistle has posted his tips on using Google language tools service as a proxy. This is useful when you are in universities or offices and want to access web sites that are black listed. All you need to do is to type this URL:

http://www.google.com/translate?langpair=en|en&u=www.example.com

Where www.example.com is the site you want to go. After all this is very well example on how to use Google services to the max:

… Ok, let's start from the beginning. We all know that Google is more than a search engine; we do use it as provider for email, mapping, news and many other services. Google is now also a free proxy service. Proxy is a device that stands between a PC and the internet, providing all the connections to the world wide web. What a proxy does is to receive all data from a requested site, so when you access web pages all data come from proxy.

What's the purpose for Google as a proxy? We often use office/school/university connections, usually those services are set to provide more safety, blocking the access to undesidered web sites (the “black list”). What you can do now is use Google translator service (language tools) as a proxy to bypass the restrictions set for our connection!…

Update: Readers reported that Google does not work well as proxy. Alternatively, may be better to use other direct web proxy with image support like boreproxy.com.
