One of the most frustrating things on earth is being censored, and if there's one group that likes to be vocal in battling such things, it's The Pirate Bay. Censorship can come in many forms, however, such as restricting what you can say in public, or which websites you can visit. TPB might not be able to take care of the former, but it is able to remedy the latter, and has, with "PirateBrowser".
PirateBrowser, built-upon Firefox (v23, at the moment), is designed strictly for those who have governments that censor the parts of the Web to its citizens. TPB lists North Korea, Iran, UK, Netherlands, Belgium, Finland, Denmark, Italy and Ireland as affected countries, but there are of course more (the Great Firewall of China comes to mind).
What makes PirateBrowser special is the fact that it's designed as a one-stop shop for those who are unable to access much of the Web thanks to their government's restrictions. Anyone with a standalone Firefox browser, or others, could go ahead and install the plugins that are bundled here, themselves. The package includes Firefox's portable browser (tweaked in name to PirateBrowser), the Tor client and also the foxyproxy addon.
At the moment, the straight HTTP download seems to be getting hammered, so by far the quickest way to download PirateBrowser is to use the magnet or torrent link, found on the website. If you happen to be located in a country with heavy government-imposed Web restrictions, and this browser helps you, please hit up the comments!
