Proxy is used to hide the identity of local information and access the blocked websites at workplaces like office, school etc. Every proxy application works under a proxy server. Proxy services are most popular now a days because people want freedom on the web. Today peoples are more smart. They know their censorship on the internet world.

When you use internet and visit any site, your IP address, location, PC information, everything can be recorded by every site. So you need to use proxy.
There are many online and software proxy services around the web. But most of them are slow. Some are not trust-able at all. Some online proxy services my steal your privacy as password, ID etc.
So try to use my two suggested proxy software to unblock a website or to hide your online identity.

1. UltraSurf : (Only for windows)
UltraSurf is a free and very fast proxy software developed by UltraReach corporation. It is specially made for Chinese internet users. But being a english program it can be used in any other countries. It even can work in slow network connections. UltraSurf allows you to overcome the censorship and blockage on the Internet. You can browse any website freely, so as to obtain true information from the free world.

UltraSurf works directly with Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. To use UltraSurf with Firefox you need to install ultrsurf firefox addon.

2. Tor : (Windows, Mac, Linux, Unix)
Tor is another strong software to provide proxy and hiding of online privacy. Tor is a combination of network and virtual tunnels that allows every people and groups to hide their privacy and increase security online. Tor provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow organizations and individuals to share information over networks without disclosing their privacy.
Tor is different from UltraSurf. Because ultrasurf only for proxy. But tor also many other functionality including maximum information hiding service.
