Alkasir is an free, open-source and cross-platform (Linux, Windows and Mac) tool that lets you access the blocked websites, it is developed by Walid al-saqaf. With its split-tunneling feature, Alkasir can optimize bandwidth consumption to provide better speed compared to many other circumvention tools.
The initial release of this tool was back in May 2009 only for Windows and it was closed-source back then, and later on it got to point where source was available and made available for Linux and Mac, now it is getting updates from time-to-time. As a way to metaphorically signal its main task of breaking through digital firewalls and allowing users access to blocked websites.
