I know this isn't exactly a PC hardware question but it's PC related and it's a self help forum right?

Anyways, I was wondering whether anyone knows of any forums that are directly aimed at discussing Internet Anonymity and helping people achieve it?

The reason I ask is that I'm seeking to be so. I could really do with a program that finds around 50+ Level 1 proxies in different locations that are non-CoDeen/PlanetLab.

Manually enterting proxies into FF from proxy lists is simply not an option since the majority of proxies are dead or incredibly slow so I'd like a program to just find and sort everything out so they're there ready to be used.

Many Thanks,
~Tracer

Could I suggest having a look at proxyswitcher.com/ (http://www.proxyswitcher.com/). Nice program and the tutorials are helpful. Really depends on your present knowledge, but I hope it is helpful for you.

Yes, I highly recommend Wilders Security Forums (http://www.wilderssecurity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=40).

Proxy sites are not the best way of achieving internet anonymity. A program like Xerobank Browser (http://xerobank.com/xB_browser.html) is good. It's portable (runs from a USB pendrive etc), free, and does the job quite well.

I was going to say TORPARK which is based on an older version of Firefox but its verryyyyy sloooow. No longer supported as Xerobank Browser I think has replaced it?

Come to think of it, does anyone know whether using a proxy server couple with a Prezzy card works with getting music from Amazon U.S?

I'd like to be a legal downloader but outside the U.S is not supported.

It was rebranded to avoid confusion with the Tor network. Xerobank Browser is essentially Torpark browser. xB Browser is slow because it uses the tor network which is a group of servers scattering the globe, info is relayed through these for anonymity.
