NetShade will route your web connection through either a public anonymous proxy server, or NetShade's own dedicated anonymous proxy. (The latter option is available only to registered users.) This has the effect of masking your IP address as you browse the web. Anonymous proxies are becoming very popular in this age of heightened security and privacy concerns, and NetShade provides a very effective and straightforward interface for this.
What's new in this version:
- Status item in menubar
- New animation in console window for switching proxy modes
- "Sweep Safari" option
- Clearer explanations of proxy login procedure
- Now packaged in .dmg format, instead of .app.zip
- Fixed a bug in which the NetShade proxy could erroneously show up in the Public Proxies listing
