Today we are reviewing some proxy sites which are popular at the minute. The goal here is to find the top proxy site to suit your needs.
What is a proxy site or server?
A proxy server acts as an intermediary between your computer or device and the internet at large. It can be good for getting around school, work or national firewalls that prevent access to certain websites based off your location or network.
There is also another important reason you might like to use a proxy site. It can allow you to your IP Address and location. This will improve privacy when browsing the web.
If you need a proxy site to get around a troublesome firewall at work, then read on to find out about the different proxy sites available right now.
This is possibly my favorite, and could be the top proxy site in today’s list. That high praise is mostly due to the ease of use of Filterbypass. It’s also completely free to use. So if you find you have a restrictive firewall at work or school that won’t let you on your favorite forum or on Facebook, consider visiting this site.
Once you enter the desired URL, just click “surf” and the website you want will pop up in a separate window.
This website has everything I need from a proxy site.
There are an array of IP addresses you can choose to use here. This allows you to specify a location to browse from. They also have anonymous private proxies available for a fixed sum. The website is minimal in design, but very functional and so is included as a top proxy site.
This is a top proxy site with a beautiful user interface. In fact, the layout and design of this website rivals many highly professional websites. They have done a great job with this. On proxysite.com you can choose from a bunch of servers based in the USA and Europe. If you find one isn’t working, there are plenty more to choose from. They also give an option to manage your cookies and to browse as if you are using a mobile device.
This one is a little different to the other sites we have discussed so far. With these guys you can choose from a list of good proxy servers along the side bar on the left hand side. This is probably my go to proxy site. From here you can access many legitimate servers from one location making it a powerful platform. Definitely a top proxy site.
Proxify is the only paid proxy server site on this list. However it is a top proxy site and is included for good reason. If you are looking for a more professional service you will find it here. They also have a 3 day free trial so you can test out if it is for you, at no loss.
You are likely to get a faster and more stable connection using this proxy site than some of the free sites.
They offer 3 varients. Proxy Basic for personal use, Professional for commercial and power users and Switchproxy for multiple systems at the same time.
The landing page for this proxy site looks a bit shoddy. Most of the page is taken up with advertisements, you’ll have to scroll to the bottom to find the part of the website you are looking for. Nevertheless, it’s functional and gets the job done.
You’ll also find all the usual options from a top proxy site here. This includes options to remove scripts and to encrypt.
This is another top proxy site. It’s similar in function to proxy.org in that it acts as a directory of useful proxy servers. They have a working list of proxy servers available to use around the globe. The user interface here is also decent.
Ninjacloak is the proxy site with the cool name. It’s a pretty decent proxy site too. They have a lot of information on the site. As with any top proxy site there is also the additional features such as “remove scripts” and “no cookies”.
The main advantage of this top proxy site is the speed of service. This makes it useful for viewing blacked videos. However, they do have a bit of a problem with annoying pop-ups and advertisements. If you can handle that, then there is no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy using this website.
I recommend you install adblock on your browser before using this site.
This particular top proxy site is speedy and responsive. The advertisements are also generally tolerable which is a plus. Bookmark this one because it’s one of the better options available.
There are also options here to encrypt the url, encrypt the page, stop cookies, remove scripts and remove objects.
Last, but not least, is Anonymouse. It’s the little proxy site that gets the job done. Anonymouse is a top proxy site and one of my old favorites. It has one of the fastest and most responsive servers going. The only issue is that if you want to access secured site (https sites like paypal) then you have to pay extra. However, if you are just needing it for general browsing and Youtube etc, its an excellent option.
Internet privacy is becoming a growing concern, not just among tech geeks, but also among the general public.
I hope this list of 10+ excellent proxy sites has been useful. Personally my favorite is proxy.org because they maintain a list of great proxy servers that you can choose between.
