    Ok, I have been out of the loop as far as web design go for a while now. It seems to me most social media sites must have javascript enabled. For example, Pinterest complains that it won't let me access the site without javascript. I know that javascript can be used to reveal your real IP. My question is are HTTP proxies enough now or do I have to do through fancier stuff?

    No, why would Javascript reveal your real IP / the fact that you are using a proxy? That would defeat the purpose of using proxies at all - Java applets could get you in trouble though, I'm not totally sure about that, but I doubt you have those enabled by default for security reasons.

    Elite anonymous proxies are the only ones that won't get the host to know the fact that you are cloaking your IP. Read more about transparent and anonymous proxies and you'll get the difference.

    Yeah, I think you're getting Javascript and Java mixed up OP :) Two totally different things. You could always just disable/uninstall Java to be safe. I don't think Pinterest even uses it anyways though.

    When it comes to stuff like that, you might have to worry about Flash when it comes to Google.
