Known as one of the largest torrent platforms on the Internet, The Pirate Bay has released a new web browser that will be available to individuals who are currently blocked from accessing the site. ‘Pirate Browser’ which was launched on the 10th anniversary of The Pirate Bay will give users easy access to circumvent existing blocks.
“It’s a simple one-click browser that circumvents censorship and blockades and makes the site instantly available and accessible. No bundled ad-ware, toolbars or other crap, just a pre-configured Firefox browser,” The Pirate Bay explains.
Several other websites that are currently blocked such as EZTV, Kickass Torrents, Bitsnoop and H33T will be also be accessible and stored as bookmarks within the browser. However, it should be noted that individuals who do use Pirate Browser will not be anonymous while surfing through it.
As DMCA Force had previously reported, several UK ISPs were in the process of blocking sites such as EZTV but with the recent news of Pirate Browser, it will be interesting to see what routes major ISPs take to effectively block torrent sites.
Users who reside in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, Italy, Ireland and several other countries will once again have complete access to downloading torrents.
