Up until now The Pirate Bay has encouraged users affected by the blackout to use proxy sites. However, on its 10th anniversary they are now releasing a special "PirateBrowser" which effectively bypasses any ISP blockade.
"It's a simple one-click browser that circumvents censorship and blockades and makes the site instantly available and accessible. No bundled ad-ware, toolbars or other crap, just a Pre-configured Firefox browser," The Pirate Bay explains.
The browser is based on Firefox 23 bundled with a Tor client and some proxy configurations to speed up loading. It is meant purely as a tool to circumvent censorship and unlike the Tor browser it doesn't provide any anonymity for its users.
"This browser is just to circumvent censorship, to remove limits on accessing sites governments don't want you to know about," The Pirate Bay notes.
