    I know what a proxy is and what it is used for, but I do not know much about proxies themselves.

    Can someone explain the various levels of proxy and how they differ? In particular I have heard of public, private, anonymous, high anonymous, Google passed and SOCKs, but I do not exactly know what they are or if there are others I should be aware of.

    Public and private seem self explanatory, but I am not sure if the obvious applies.

    transparent - sites you visit know you are using proxy and can see your real ip
    anonymous - sites you visit know you are using proxy, but they can't see your real ip
    high/elite anonymous - sites you visit don't know you are using proxy and can't see your real ip
    google passed - a high/elite anonymous proxy that can access google.com (not banned at Google)
