“You can't touch this.”
Introduction and Rationale
It has been known that rogue states but also companies and universities put restrictions to Internet usage. These restrictions are so aggressive and perverse that the Internet experience of the end-user is completely compromised.
WebSense (IPAEng: ˈwɛbsɛnsɛsʌks) (a.k.a "Web'non'sense") comes to the rescue by providing stealth anonymity to the masses, allowing them to browse the Internet without restrictions. Due to this, WebSense is severely unpopular in specific non-secural countries; merely having WebSense software installed on your computer may land you in jail for two years.
WebSense offers anonymous secure proxy servers that end-users can connect to. Once such a server is blocked, WebSense activates a new one and informs the users through encrypted e-mail to switch to it.
There is currently work carried out to integrate WebSense with the Onion Routing project in order to offer protection against traffic analysis.
WebSense is resilient to differential analysis attacks thanks to patented technologies being employed.
WebSense is used especially by these groups of people

The motto of WebSense is Putting the Sense back in the Web. As more content-filtering software packages are being sold and utilised in perimeter networks, the real message of the Internet got diluted. Therefore, in a wise move, WebSense adopted the motto of sensible Internet, and puts the sense back to where it belongs, the Internet itself. The other Websense motto is "De Heil Websense!".
Thanks to donations from around the world, the WebSense international community raised US$20.000 to win the online auction and register the Internet domain WebsenseSucks.com so that no other people may use. Please join the new initiative to register WebsenseReallySucks.com and avoid corporate interference to the mission of Websense.
WebSense:Wikipedia makes fun of WebSense at the popular parody Website Wikipedia. In the sly humour of the Wikipedia hippies, WebSense is depicted as a content-filtering product aimed at restricting Internet access.
