Share Article

Virtual World Computing, makers of Cocoon, a cloud based browser, introduces its free VPN Service plan to US Internationals located worldwide (with China being the only exception), which ensures individual privacy and security along with a connection back to U.S. online content.

“With Cocoon, your favorite indigenous, online TV programs and songs are now at your fingertips, regardless of your location” - CEO Jeff Bermant.

The Cocoon cloud browser includes a private encrypted connection to U.S. content from anywhere in the world. Cocoon is the first browser that does this for its users while allowing users to surf the Internet privately and securely. No other major browser provides an encrypted connection.

Since Cocoon is a cloud browser, the service provides internet users with direct access from any computer system irrespective of location. This access includes all online multimedia content that would normally only be available to users with IP addresses in the United States.

Access to Multimedia of Choice

“With Cocoon, your favorite indigenous, online TV programs and songs are now at your fingertips, regardless of your location,” says CEO Jeff Bermant, “This is a new development for a browser. It’s just one of the major things we can do that other browsers can’t. In fact, we have thousands of users from around the world who are now using Cocoon partly for this reason, so they can connect to U.S. Internet. Many people when going overseas think they’ll have the same access to the content they’re accustomed to, but that’s not the case.”

Guaranteed Privacy

Cocoon guarantees the privacy of Internet users surfing the net from foreign countries through public Wi-Fi by acting as a web proxy or buffer between a computer and all traffic coming from the World Wide Web. It does this by funneling all incoming and outgoing traffic through an SSL encrypted tunnel to Cocoon servers—for security, culling and privacy purposes—before redirecting secure traffic to a particular computer.

The Cloud based browser also stores a user’s personal data such as browsing history, bookmarks, and favorite sites on its cloud servers, thereby eliminating the possibility of information theft while using public internet sources in countries susceptible to fraudulent activities. The protection process also ensures that users are protected from advertising and survey companies, seeking personal information relating to the browsing habits or personality of internet consumers.

Screening Disruptive Elements

Predictive analysis shows that the use of text and video spamming techniques for advertorial purposes by e-commerce websites is set to experience a 50% hike within the next 6 months. This means consumers can expect more invasive advertisement techniques while browsing in the near future. Cocoon deals with this situation by blocking invasive adverts, virus, spyware, and video downloads from flooding your machine, while also providing you with the option of selecting any particular item for downloading.

The simplicity of this (mobile/internet) add-on ensures that you do not have to be an expert internet user before installing and utilizing its extensive features. Cocoon has also been listed by CNET as "one of the best add-ons of the year". Find out more at
