    Almost all proxies I use run insanely slow or fail completely. I'm starting to rage pretty hard.

    Are there any methods of disguising your IP when browsing web sites that are faster and more efficient? Are paid proxy services the best bet? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    There may be a problem with your configuration. Make sure you set SOCKS and HTTP differently.

    I've seen a few paid proxy sites suggested by members here. You have other options as well. One would be to purchase a SSH account and tunnel through that (this would also provide encryption). You could also purchase a VPN account.

    Or google for phproxy; there are a few sites without ads.

    Or try one last proxy: (SOCKS 5) This one has been online for at least a week and is hosted on the Amazon cloud. (Located in Washington)
