Browse Faster and Anonymously with Toonel

Most of us know how annoying it is when you’re unable to open Facebook, update your antivirus, download any file, or use your IM application behind a corporate or university firewall. Although there are many ways to bypass them, most of them require you to find fast proxy servers or use unsecure tunnel websites. The problems with these alternatives is mostly the insecurity and slow browsing speed. And finding fast proxies isn’t an easy job itself as well.

All these issues are taken care of with Toonel. It is one of the most useful utilities I’ve seen in recent times. Not only does it provide you with anonymous surfing, but it also compresses the data to speed up your browsing over slow internet connections.


To use Toonel, you need to download the small java application. And of course, you need Java runtime to execute it. Which shouldn’t be a big problem and is worth it. The application itself is very small, less than 100 kb in fact. Once you run the program you will need to change your Internet proxy settings by going to your browsers options and changing the server address to and Port to 8080.


An you’re done. Now you can browse, download and stream easily. You’ll be able to access any blocked websites or services. If you’re on a slow connection you’ll even notice a speed increase. You can also reduce the GIF and JPEG quality to further speed up your browsing which is a great advantage of Toonel.
