What is Hola browser extension and how does the Hola plugin workHola! Unblocker is chiefly known as a web browser extension (also called "add-on" or "plugin") that removes network region locks and website blocades. Being installed with a web browser such as Firefox or Chrome it provides the users with unblocking feature that allows them to watch top region-locked online TV and video services and enjoy popularmovie streaming websites. Almost no limits: Netflix US along with regional ones, Hulu, CBS, Fox TV, iTV, BBC iPlayer, Pandora and many more, completely regardless of where you are at the moment.
How it works? Generally speaking, Hola as well as its alternatives is very similar to so-called virtual private networks and actually works like a VPN service. The difference is that this browser plugin uses P2P (peer-to-peer) technology to share online content between users. In other words, having installed the add-on with a web browser its users make any online content which they themselves are allowed to access also fully accessible to other users.
Fast surfing, no geo-based limitations and restrictions, smooth audio and video stream - all for free and free for all!
Hola unlocker is also available as a VPN-like application, Interner Accelerator, which is even more sophisticated than Hola's web browser plugin. However, being a stand-alone application Hola! Interner Accelerator requires some settings to be done to work towards its goal. Anyway, both solutions are absolutely free and work perfectly for users from different regions. In addition, Hola Unlocker browser extension works well with the most popular web browsers - Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. Apple's Safari browser and Internet Explorer are not supported by the Interner Accelerator as of yet, however you can run Hola VPN on Mac OS X simply by using using their free browser extension for Chrome or Firefox. The addon does not require any set-up configuration to be done at all. It works right out of the box.
