Editors' Review

+

This small program provides strong privacy protection with none of the confusing setups of other proxy tools. In seconds, you'll be ready to surf privately and securely with Ultrasurf's fast, private proxies.

When you launch this program for the first time, it loads Internet Explorer automatically. This can be changed in the options menu as this tool works well with other browsers, too. Ultrasurf has a very simple interface with Home, Retry, Option, Help, and Exit buttons. One thing we found to be a bit awkward was the golden lock icon, which showed up on our Windows Taskbar after we started the program. However, we managed to hide it by unchecking the option. Overall, this tool is very easy to use and page-loading time while browsing the Web is quite fast. It is an ideal tool for people who don't know much about how proxies work, as you don't have to assign any port numbers or play with the features in order to hide your IP address. Those who are familiar with using proxy servers can change the proxy settings manually if they wish.

If you like to protect your privacy or can't access certain Web sites due to censorship, Ultrasurf will be the easiest gateway for you. It doesn't have a plethora of options, but overall it does what it's designed to do.

there is no way to make it use my default browser and it slowed down my computer. some how it hogged a ton of resources. it's actually much more trouble than it's worth.

This is a pretty godly piece of software. I highly recommend it if you want to get around blocks of any kind. I'll be visiting my friend in Shanghai and I am glad I have this software.

"Good little zipfile"

February 07, 2013  |  By fredg06

 |  Version: Ultrasurf 12.10

Pros

Very good at switching the IP address to a different one. It goes through it's own website, switching the IP address to a new one. If you want to exit the program, it returns all settings of your ISP or DSL or whatever, to the original settings. You can exit the program, then re-start it, and it gives you a different IP address.

Cons

The ISP name is always the same: Hurricane Electric. But, it does change the address numbers.

Summary

Good for changing IP address. It returns it to the original when you exit the program. It does NOT put files into a new program that you would have to uninstall. It is simply a zip file, located in Downloads that you execute with double right clicks. You click on Options to get rid of the Yellow Lock symbol, and other choices.
