Furthering the development of MassBrowser, a volunteer-driven censorship circumvention tool.

MassBrowser is a free to use and open source tool designed to circumvent Internet censorship. It has been designed and developed by the Secure, Private Internet (SPIN) Research Group at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. MassBrowser operates with the help of internet users in uncensored locations who volunteer to help users in censored locations.

This project will support the development of a final release desktop version of MassBrowser as well as an Android version, setting up and deploying a performance measurement framework, usability improvements, and ultimate adoption by third party systems.
