    "WAS Working Really Well"

    November 26, 2012  |   By JSM1963

    Pros

    Easy access to many sites. Still free

    Cons

    Was even easier to access sites, until one of their updates from about a month ago. Using this to get around the Los Angeles Unified School District firewall. Windows Live Mail application used to get my Hotmail. Not anymore. Still have access to Facebook, but pictures don't load. Went to Vimeo to see a video I was working on. Hotspot couldn't get around the district firewall for that site. Vimeo? Seriously?

    Summary

    Seems to be the best option going, so what are you going to do?
