So Firefox is starting it's own VPN service. So it's users can browse the net incognito. I think it's a good idea to offer this to people but honestly, I don't know why anyone really needs it. The article says to stop third party ads but I don't know. That seems a bit flimsy of an idea.

I pay for a VPN, only time I use it is when I'm in America, I like to watch a couple of TV programs on CBC and I guess my antenna isn't strong enough to bring in CBC clear enough. So I set the vpn us for Toronto and watch CBC live streaming.. See CBC blocks anyone who isn't in Canada from streaming live video..

Never heard of them. Sounds reasonable though

I use opera mostly, was not aware they had a built in vpn. I will check it out and post back...
So I enabled the free vpn, it seems to work ok, however with the vpn enabled I cannot get the youtube sidebar extension to properly search videos or stream them. Maybe youtube blocks vpn users. Wonder if youtube works with firefox vpn enabled?

I don't know if its the answer but here in Australia the netflix library is only a small fraction of the US NF library (and I gather we actually pay slightly more for our subs than US users do) Grrrrrr.

Would I be able to access NF US library with a VPN (even though I have an Aussie account?_)
