MAFIAAFire: ThePirateBay Dancing!


(The suggested donation amount is $10.74, after Paypal's fees we get ~$10 in hand)
The addon is like an "automatic proxy" that sends some of your requests (that you choose) to particular sites via a proxy.

This is just kept online as others who want to take up the fight against the MAFIAA can use our code / ideas as a starting base.
***** OUTDATED. PLEASE DON'T INSTALL. ***************

For example:
Imagine you had a friend called Peter.
The government blocks you from talking to Peter directly.
You now have to employ a "middle friend" to talk to Peter, if you were in school you would ask a buddy to pass notes to Peter for you, because he is not forbidden to talk to Peter. Peter gets the note from your buddy, writes a response himself and gives it to your buddy who gives it back to you!
In the same way, when you try to request a blocked website (for example ThePirateBay) the plugin automatically connects to a random proxy (think of it like a random buddy) that takes your request to connect to the website, it then gets the response and passes it back to you!

It's simple but because there is someone in the middle making the request for you it also makes tracking you (for example by advertisers who want to sell you stuff based on your location) almost impossible as these "buddy" proxy servers are based all over the world and hide your real location. While it's extremely hard to be truly anonymous on the internet, this does protect your privacy a wee bit more.

The best part is the whole process is almost completely transparent to the user (the person who has this plugin installed), you simply go about browsing the internet as you would before any blocks were put up!
