For things like Facebook, there was a plugin for Firefox that was released recently, Firesheep, which is a really easy way if you're sitting in an Internet café with Wi-Fi, that you can look at what everybody is doing and you can hijack their Facebook logins. So you would actually be able to post things on their wall as if you were them. There was another plugin that was released by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, called "HTTPS Everywhere". Https is something that you can look for in your browser that means that your connection to a Web site is encrypted, including your password. So if you're sitting in an Internet café and somebody is running this plugin trying to mess with your Facebook account your password is going to be sent to Facebook as a bunch of nonsense characters that they wouldn't be able to use. The https is encrypting your data. So that the government or the hackers or whoever can not penetrate to your information. And can not use them or exploit them for their own purposes. Https is really easy to use. When you log in to some email providers or when you log in to check your accounts, your credit card and your bank accounts, it's used by default. So it's something that a Web site provider can put in to protect you. Some of them don't do this terribly well, you could type in "https" and then it goes away. It just goes to "http" which means it's unencrypted connection. So, "HTTPS Everywhere", where the secure connection is available, it forces it. And it's really easy to use, all you do is you add the plugin to your Firefox browser and it runs in the background. It's not directly a circumvention tool but it makes your Internet use much more private and secure and in some places that might translate into censorship circumvention, because people ideally can no longer see what you're doing in order to block it.
