2. Download a Proxy Browser

The features and styles of browsers will vary, but this could give you some decent options for selecting proxy servers according to your requirements.
3. Use a web based proxy
A web based proxy is another option to change IP address with proxy servers. This doesn't require any downloading, and there are both free and paid options available. With a web based proxy, you type your URL (using your current browser) into a web page. The page will then open up your desired URL in a mini-browser inside your current browser.
