Three Good Proxy Sites
There are a number of good proxy sites online. But there are also different types of proxies, different levels of anonymity,and different situations where you would need to use each. As with any pro...
This is an interesting site because all over the Internet, its labeled as a proxy, but on their main domain, its labeled a VPN. I would tend to believe HSS on this one because users often get confused and talk a lot about stuff they don't really understand, or perhaps there was a change somewhere along the way. Either way, its still free, and its won all kinds of awards. Download is quick, and using is very easy with their included toolbar. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in China where I'm located, and you can bet that the free version is going to have some bumps like bandwidth, ads, and lack of access to Hulu, Netflix, and other sites that ban proxies.
Hide My Ass
Hide My Ass is another great free site to get a hold of. Not only to they provide a free web based proxy, but they also have an up to date list of open proxy servers (not owned by HMA, so not guaranteed). The advantage of these two options is that there's no downloading necessary, so you can access them anywhere you can browse the web. There are also all kinds of free anonymous surfing tools available. Their free web based proxy does not work from China, but I have used it before and can vouch for its quality. However, their ProVPN is still a much better choice as you can imagine.
This is another web based proxy, but they own their own servers, This means no spam, faster connections, no ads, and just better quality. It's a paid service though, so you'll have to shell out at least six dollar a month. Depending on your anonymous surfing needs and situation, this might be worth it. This service works in China, which is amazing because most web based proxies are blocked from inside The GFW. This isn't just a good proxy site, its a great one. They offer a free trial to all users.
So here are some good ideas to get you started. I've included services that are 100% or in part free, so anyone can access these services and browse the Internet, download, and share files anonymously.
