    I am sick of trying to use those lame proxy sites online. When you guys are talking about using proxies, I'm assuming you have your IE or Firefox setup to manually configure the proxy right?
    And what are the risks of this?
    Basically I'm looking for proxy basics.
    Thanks

    There are various proxy manager extensions for firefox that are pretty good. I usually make my own proxies.
    Anything you find publicly listed is either going to be very busy (slow) or worthless for some other reason.
    Frequently, blackhat (hackers) can buy "socks" from bot masters on IRC.

    When it comes to using public proxies, the easiest proxy software to use is Tor.

    Download Tor and the Firefox plugin TorButton.

    This allows you to toggle Tor on and off from within firefox, after lauching Vidalia and Privoxy (Tor). You can also configure Tor to work from within IE.

    But is tor just like, say, ghostsurf? I have that but my concern is that, yeah, it hides MY ip but it's just one or two of their ips you go through. If those get banned you're back to square one. Unless I'm mistaken.

    Is this similar to a trojan?
