I've built up a HTPC using a Windows 7 and Chrome apps for the various online services we want to access. Control is via a wireless keyboard with built in trackball.
Initially I set it up with the Hola(free) extension on Chrome - which does a fantastic job automatically switching between countries depending on the website being accessed.
However Hola hasn't got great performance for some content and it seems to slow down Chrome on sites where we don't need it (i.e. Youtube).
I'm considering a Hola Premium subscription, but before I take the plunge I wanted to hear about alternatives.
The biggest issue for me is usability - whatever I install has to be so easy other (non-technical) family members can use it.
Anything that requires changing navigating through loads of menus or manually changing settings isn't going to work.
Automatic switching (like Hola) would be preferred, but even an easy to use icon/gadget on the desktop would be fine. At the moment we only need to switch between NZ(off), USA and UK proxies.
Any advice would be appreciated.
