Using Proxies

Web-based Proxies: Web-based Proxies are powered by server-side softwares such as CGIProxy, PHProxy, Glype, and custom proxy scripts. These proxies work entirely through a Web browser. Usually all that is needed to hide your IP address and surf anonymously is to visit the service's homepage in a Web browser and enter a URL (website address) in the form provided. There is no requirement to download or install software or reconfigure your computer. To work, a CGI based proxy must manipulate the document you've requested and all its associated elements and objects. This can be tricky, and not all proxies are as efficient or effective as others. Some services are slow and may produce errors while rendering the many variations of Web page code. But they are popular, numerous, and easy to use

A proxy server is a kind of buffer between your computer and the Internet resources you are accessing. They allow you to bypass firewalls and content filters and browse your favorite websites, without revealing your location (IP address).

Proxy servers are a great way to be able to bypass website restrictions that your school or work place may have put in place

The best and safest kind are elite proxies. An elite proxy will unblock every and any kind of site and allow you to play and upload every kind of file

While using a proxy remember these facts: Don’t use the ID’s which have important data in it, Make some Email ID’s for proxy specific use, Disable cookies, Don’t save passwords

While a copy of a page is stored in a proxy cache, the original page could be updated, and users would never see it, because the proxy will return the stale copy to users. Even if a browser user clicks on Refresh or Reload, the proxy will still return the stale version. With MSIE for Windows, the fix is to use Ctrl-Refresh (hold down the Ctrl key while clicking on Refresh) or Ctrl-F5, which causes the transparent proxy to refresh its copy of the page from the original web server.

In a nutshell, public proxies are special websites that provide so-called “Proxy” function. You can treat “Proxy” as an agent or middleman of your Internet access. It sends the requests to the end server for you and passes the results back to you.
