For Google Chrome browser - ZenMate plugin
To bypass the blocking of sites, to get privacy for the Google Chrome browser, you need to install a free elementary one-click plugin in the settings from Google’s store: ZenMate for Google Chrome

For Mozilla FireFox browser - Tor Browser Bundle package
To bypass the lock and get privacy for the Mozilla FireFox browser, you need to install the free official anonymous browser and a set of other useful plugins: Tor Browser Bundle
Tor provides protection by routing your network traffic across a distributed network of servers run by volunteers around the world: it’s impossible to view your Internet connection, view the sites you’ve visited, prevents geo-location from being captured, gives access to sites that are blocked.
For Opera browser - Opera Turbo function
To bypass the lock and get privacy for Opera, you need to install a free official browser and enable Turbo support in it: Opera Turbo
It has the function "Opera Turbo". It works this way - the data comes first to the opera site, and from it to you. That is, for blocking programs it will look as if you are climbing the opera site, but in reality these will be blocked sites. Download and install. By the way, opera is for all kinds of mobile phones too.
FriGate plugin for any sites
The friGate plugin for the Chrome browser seems to be written by Russian programmers: both its website and description in the Chrome Web Store are available only in Russian.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to find out which resources are included in this list, and which are not, but, apparently, it will eventually include almost all domestic sites with multimedia content that will be recognized as “pirated” in accordance with the new law.
Hola plugin for media content sites
The free Hola plugin for Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox browsers, as well as the Android mobile operating system not only allows you to access media services that are not available in your country, but also speeds up the loading of pages and other content (does not work on Mac OS X).
Such acceleration is carried out at the expense of the Hola operation scheme: during viewing, data is cached on peer machines with an installed plug-in, which, when requested, transfer them to the nearest machine in the network. The more Hola users in your area, the faster the pages load.
Hola Unlocker is a free VPN service with several pre-installed scripts for streaming video sites.
By the way, Hola behaves differently on different sites and in different browsers, so in case of failure it makes sense to try a different combination.
In addition, some sites "recognize" over time, when they are accessed through such plugins, and take appropriate measures.
Media Hint plugin for sites with media content
Another plugin that focuses primarily on multimedia content sites is Media Hint . Basically, this extension is intended to access US media services outside the US and is not very suitable for other purposes.
Media Hint plugin exists in versions for Chrome and Firefox browsers and works fully automatically, without any additional settings. According to the developers, when using Media Hint, the download speed does not suffer at all, since only the request of the necessary page passes through the proxy servers, and all other connections go through normal channels.
