I have had several questions sent into me lately all about proxy surfing.
When you get into proxy surfing, this is when the request you send into the browser goes to another service, then that other service sends your request from another location and pulls it back to you. Most of the time this is used to provide a means to deny access to certain URLs in a blacklist, thus providing content filtering.
Firefox does deliver a fix though with several add-ons you can install…
- Proxy Toolbar
- Environment Proxy
- SwitchProxy Tool
- BlockStop Proxy
FoxyProxy is probably the most widely used, but the others have advantages too. Which one is your favorite?
