On engadget, Mariella Moon reports on uProxy, a plug-in for Firefox and Chrome announced by Google that allows "someone from a country with limited internet access" to "bypass restrictive firewalls that hinder users from accessing vital (and trivial) information online by creating peer-to-peer connections."
The service has yet to launch, but its creators -- the University of Washington and Brave New Software -- have opened a restricted beta for select, technically adept users to make it as "secure, private, and robust" as possible.
