Woo! I found the most wonderful way to access Facebook from China! It's totally free! No VPN, no web-based proxy and no software. Just need to configure your computer by two steps.
1. Configure the hosts file: /etc/hosts (Mac OS X) or C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (Windows) by following the "https://smarthosts.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/hosts"
2. Login Facebook via https "https://www.facebook.com" then enable the "Secure Browsing" on "https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=security&edited=browsing".
Then you can enjoy the facebook!
PS: Here are the details of step 1 on Mac OS X, it's a little bit difficult than Windows:
Input "sudo -i"
Input "vi /etc/hosts"
Copy from "https://smarthosts.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/hosts"
Press button "ESC"
This is just a backup, if the latest hosts cannot work, use the below instead.
