    A proxy site is a site that you can use to get onto programs.

    Like if bebo was blocked at your school for example you could go onto a proxy site and get onto bebo through one of the links on the proxy site.. x

    In the web surfing world, when a user wants a proxy it is usually to hide there activity. Example of normal web activity myBrowser -> Connect Through My ISP Connection -> "a website" Technically the website I just connected to can trace me, of course it isn't easy but in legal matters it is definatley doable. First part is easy: take my IP address and then locate the ISP that the IP address belongs to Second Part, contact that ISP and ask for the user who was using this IP address at such and such time. With a Court order this really isn't that hard either. Example WIth a proxy: myBrowser -> Connect Through My ISP Connection -> A proxy Site -> "a website" Now it loks like you are coming from the proxy and hiding you actual IP address. Although this isn't entirley true. If there are legal issue it can still be traced because the proxy site knows you IP address. The only real benefit to using a proxy is if you are trying to hide your surfing on your local machine, because your history will always show that you were connected to that proxy site rather than the pron site you are trying to hide form your wife, girlfriend, mother or whatever. And there are better ways of doing that as well. More legitimate uses for proxies exist in the corporate network security world. but I won't get into those now..

    A Proxy site is a web page which allows you to browse your favorite web sites -- even though your access to those web sites might be blocked by a content filter.

    If you find that you are blocked from your favorite websites, use one of these web proxy sites to get around the block.

    Proxy sites enable you to bypass your own Internet provider and browse through the proxy web site. All that you have to do is type the web site address you would like to visit in the form they provide, and start browsing. Once you keep browsing using that form, you are protected and your real IP address is not being logged. Bookmark this page to keep track of the newest and best web proxy sites.
