I know that I have not been updating the proxy list for a while and I promise to do it in the near future. For now, I post a list of new and relatively unknown proxy sites that should work for most people. If they are not working I suggest you setup a proxy on your own at a free domain hosting service that allows php or cgi. You should probably rename the files accordingly because it could be that the proxy scripts have been banned and not only the domains or IP that host the scripts.
An extensive list of web proxies can be found by following the link to my latest post about web proxies.
The proxy sites are all not working anymore. This is often the case when it comes to proxy sites as most tend to come and go rather quickly. There are only a few popular services that manage to stay on top of the game over the years.
Some of those proxy sites include the following services:
Proxify - A free web proxy based on CGI Proxy. It supports SSL sites, can remove cookies, scripts and ads.
Hide My Ass - Another popular and long standing proxy service. It can be used for anonymous surfing and other activities. It displays ads on the proxified pages.
Those two proxy sites are just two examples. You can also head over to proxy list sites that offer up to date proxy site listings. Here are again two examples of general proxy sites that link to hundreds of existing web proxies.
The first site is proxy.org, a long standing web proxy directory. It lists at the time of writing more than two thousand web proxies conveniently stored in a web form on the main page.
The other site that you can use for regularly updated proxy lists is proxysites.net which also offers a nice listing of free proxy sites.
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it. The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.
