Free VPN Service and Client for Mac

This post is specially for Mac lovers! It talks about how using your beloved Mac you can get access to all US based sites which are otherwise restricted in your country.
When we wrote an earlier post on our blog 'Gmail Call features Outside US' there were comments from Mac user about need of a similar service for their Macs also. At that time we did not had enough resources to test related services/settings on a Mac, but now Abtevrything community is growing day by day. Readers are contributing by providing us with test results for workarounds we suggest. We like to thank and give the credit for this post to one of our reader Brenton Pobjie (Twitter: @SHIMANOTWIT6000) who helped us with testing this workaround and providing the screen shots needed.
