    Hello,

    Few weeks ago i shared Free Proxy List Grabber script here http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-list-every-minute-scrapebox-other-tools.html

    Now i am modifying my script to grab and test 10 times more proxies and provide filters like
    * Google passed proxies
    * Cookies enabled
    * GET /POST Enabled
    * User Agent enabled
    * Latency

    However my current script can only test HTTP proxies.
    I am wondering if i should work on testing even Sock proxies or not .Is is worth the effort?

    i would like to know who prefers sock proxies over HTTP proxies and on what scenarios .so that i can decide if its worth the time or not.

    Please share your helpful thoughts..

    Thanks
