Ever wanted to access a web site or Youtube video, only to be told that the particular resource you want is "not available in your country"? This is normally done for copyright or licencing reasons, and can be frustrating.
So here's how to get around it. Head to http://hola.org and download the Hola Unblocker. It's available for multiple platforms, including as an add-in for Chrome and Firefox. Then, when you want to access a blocked site, enable the unblocker and tell it which country you'd like your internet connection to appear to be coming from. It's as simple as that!
In the example below, you'll see that I was unable to access Pandora because it's not available from the UK (which is where I'm based). But once Hola redirected my internet traffic via their US proxy, Pandora happily let me use their site.
