Many different countries censor the internet within their state. Citizens frequently wish to avoid the state censorship. There are many different methods that have been developed to achieve this. Governments and citizens are in a constant arms race, with both developing opposing technologies. China in particular has the largest population of people on the planet, and the Chinese government attempts to censor the internet. This paper will investigate three methods of navigating around state censorship: Cachebrowser, INTANG and Tor. Cachebrowser and INTANG were developed specifically to navigate around state censorship while Tor was originally developed for anonymous browsing. This paper will analyze their effectiveness and viability to avoid censorship.
