Schools, Offices and Governments alike like to put curbs on your freedom. For example a search on Google china would reveal considerably censored and doctored results to suit the Chinese government. Schools ban sites so that students are less distracted and use the internet for useful things. Offices ban sites to increase productivity.
So is orkut banned at your workplace or School ? , if yes we have got the perfect solution for you. We always do articles on opera Mini, thats because Opera Mini was the very first cool software me and my brother installed on our mobile phones. So how can Opera Mini help you access blocked and banned sites ?
It works like any other proxy, for people who dont know, proxies are web servers who fetch the page for you. For example, you cant go to the market, you tell your maid to get the stuff and give it to you. In the same way, when your computer is banned from accessing Orkut, you can ask another computer (a proxy) to get Orkut.com for your computer.
You may also log onto http://www.operamini.com/beta/simulator/ and browse to the site of your choice , as the simulator uses a proxy based in Norway, your sites open as though you are not sitting in your school or office, but in Norway in Europe. And here is proof that Orkut works in Opera Mini simulator even if its banned.
To our friends in UAE : We are looking for more such proxies which will allow you to access Orkut.com easily , the current thing we have discovered to access banned Orkut does not allow posting scraps till now, but be aware, we are working on finding new stuff to help you get over the BAN on Orkut placed by your governments.
Orkutproxy.in also looks good, but always think twice before using your username and password on proxies !!!
