Mgeni: a perspective access browser


Mgeni is a little browser, forked from Arora, that makes it quick and easy to browse websites and access web services that are geographically restricted. For example, Mgeni allows you to view BBC iplayer even if you’re not in the UK.

How does it work? When browsing the Internet with Mgeni your requests are directed through the Tor network so that they appear to websites to be coming from the country of your choice. Naturally, this means you will need to install Tor, as well as Mgeni, to get going.

Mgeni is meant to make perspective access easy, and as a side-benefit incentivize users to run Tor servers of their own.

Mgeni is a spin-off from my other project, Torora
