    socks use a handshake protocol to inform the proxy software
    about the connection that the client is trying to make and may
    be used for any form of tcp or udp socket connection,

    whereas a HTTP proxy analyses the HTTP headers sent through
    it in order to deduce the address of the server and therefore may
    only be used for HTTP traffic

    Similar to proxy server socks proxy will retrieve web page for you
    provide its own identity to the sites it visits.
    in contrast to all http proxy servers with exception of https proxy,
    socks proxy server will never spill client IP address because variable
    HTTP_Client_IP and HTTP_Forwarded_For_IP responsible for spilling
    of client IP address do not exist.

    Yes, SOCKS proxies can be used for a number of services on any port. HTTP proxies are limited to port 80 and HTTP protocol

    that depends ...
    paypal is using flash cookies to trace their customers the ppl cookie folder name is paypalobjects.com, you need a virgin dedicated private proxy or a virgin dedicated vpn ...
    You can also use this software to view and erase the flash cookies from your pc: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/flash_cookies_view.html

    before buying proxies everybody can take a look for reviews
