Access blocked websites by using the https version of its Google cache. It’s like a free https proxy from Google and very fast loading.
In most colleges and schools, the content of certain sites is blocked using filters or firewalls. Normally in such case, most of us use free web proxies or vpn services. But most of these web proxy services are either slow or already blocked by the firewall and VPN servers are charging heavily per bandwidth.
The best method to try out in this case is by using google’s https cache service. This cache is linked directly to the secured https version of the site’s content in google servers. [you can access the google cache of any site by searching for cache:example.com in the search box]
HTTPS version could be added by entering an ‘s’ after the http cache url or you can download an extension for google chrome which converts all google cache link to its secured version.

This is a useful trick. I had this problem when I was studying at university, it looks like a nice workaround. If people knew the full power of google search and how to properly use the search generators they would save a hell of a lot of time.
This hack only conveys TEXT over the HTTPS cache link, ALL other content is viewed in your browser as if you are not using the cache, can therefore create a false sense of privacy and the bypassing of blocking and monitoring software
can a https protocol be blocked..??
I am in Shanghai for a few months now, I`m using http://www.highspeedvpn.com to access blocked sites.
Works well for me, the VPN unblocked Facebook, YouTube etc.
