Freegate is one of the best proxy tools that I've ever used. It assures 100% anonymity and safety for your internet browsing. It is developed as an anti-censorship software by Dynamic Internet Technology Inc. (DIT). It mainly aims at giving internet freedom to Chinese users, so it provides in-built settings and extra options that are helpful for Chinese users. However, it will work for users from other countries also.
Freegate comes with a simple interface with one start screen and main UI with four tabs. In the first tab, it will display the graph of data usage and connection strength to their servers. In the next tab you can see the connection status and button to disconnect proxy whenever you want. In the next two tabs you can change the program settings.
One of the main attraction of Freegate is it's portability. It is available as a small portable zip file of 2.3 MB, so no need to install or change any settings in your system . You can enter into the anonymous world within two clicks.
Connectivity and Speed
Unlike many other proxy tools, it will take only 2 to 5 seconds to connect to their server. It is very much fast and you will not feel that you are browsing through a proxy. Freegate is using anonymous proxy, so sites will not detect the country from which you are surfing. But the downloading speed is not up to mark. Freegate mainly aims for internet browsing. It is not suitable for downloading files. Also it will not work with torrent clients (at least in my case), so you cannot download any torrent with it.
Freegate is tunneling through ports other than 8080 (normal HTTP port), so that it is accessible in most restricted networks. There is an option for wireless or unstable network. If you enable that option it will not disconnect suddenly when your network is gone. So it is the best option for wifi users.
Two tunnels are available; A tunnel and F tunnel. Both are fast but you can try and find which one is more faster in your location. In my case, I am using F tunnel. I feel it is little more better. You can set your own browser (default is Internet Explorer) from the settings tab to browse using it.
You can change the window title and even the system tray icon to hide this tool from others while you are using it. You can set it to automatically close the Internet Explorer and clear history when the program exit.
In my opinion, it is the best free proxy tool that you can find in the internet. It works better than many other paid tools and proxy services that are available in the market. It assures you 100% anonymity and freedom. And it will not make any changes in your system or it will not alter your network connectivity settings.
