U.S. company defeats Brit anonymous surfing law

Author: JT Smith

The Register reports that anonymous Web-surfing company SafeWeb has expanded its secure server facilities
in New York "so that Europeans can enjoy faster access to private, and virtually
anonymous, Web browsing and e-mail.
The company also has an application called Triangle Boy, which adds an extra layer
of security for the truly paranoid and further obstacles and frustrations for investigators
and censors.

Triangle Boy is a randomly-distributed network of boxes, made available by volunteers
with fat pipes, which forwards users to the SafeWeb portal.

It's a free, open source, peer-to-peer application that the company says will bypass
firewalls and other mechanisms that attempt to block access to SafeWeb."
