Why Use A Proxy?
Whenever you surf the internet your ip address is being logged by every website you visit. A simple check of web logs will show the ip address of everyone that visited a particular website. These logs can be kept for years, and can send a trace back to you! It's not a matter of just covering your tracks as most of us have nothing to hide, it's a matter of *privacy*. Your right to privacy is being compromised when browsing without a proxy.
Web Based Proxies
A web-based proxy is a service that allows you to bypass your own internet provider and browse using the proxy web-based website. All that you have to do is type the website 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. There are many web based proxies to choose from. Start browsing using the featured selection.
