I thought this was intresting but I never tried it (found it here: Click)

Free Google Proxy!

Access restricted web sites using Google language tools service as a proxy.

A little tutorial found on inspired me for this hack. That tutorial suggests to translate a web page, using Google Translator, to access it even if restricted. It worked fine but something else was needed... why translate?

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...

A proxy is a device that stands between a PC and the internet, providing all the connections to the 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 undesired web sites (the "black list"). What you can do now is use the Google Translator service (language tools) as a proxy to bypass the restrictions set for your connection!

You just need to type the following URL:


("target-site" stands for the URL you want to go to...)

What you'll get is the translation (English to English!) of the page you want to see... your connection is directed to a page so this page won't be blocked (would be blocked only with on the black list), no matter what the content is.

Notice that the URL has been a little hacked because the parameter "langpair" (This parameter has a couple of languages: the first is the original one, the second is the one you want to translate tois set to "en|en" (English/English) so the page is processed by Google but you can keep the original language of the page (no need to translate!).

If you need another language (e.g. french) you just need to set the parameter langpair to "fr|fr" and you'll be able to read french pages in french!
