Use this forum to talk about a feature you're missing.
[quote=Yogi] @ JamesD Don't worry, I have plenty of time :) It would be nice if once finished it would be implemented in the default setup of further K-M distributions. Of course you can use a real proxy as a learning experience as well if you whish so. The site above, as far as I can see is a web service and not an open public proxy to be used directly with your browser. You can find thousands of 'free' public proxies by doing a search whith Google you could theoretically try. For different reasons I wouldn't recommend any of them. Besides, finding a working proxy is a PITA. Even if you are lucky and you catch a working one there is no warranty that it will still work after a few minutes of use. So far about free public open proxies. You could also try (my recommendation) to experiment with a local proxy you will have to install/unzip on your system. Proxomitron for instance would be an interesting (learning) choice because it is a very versatile filtering (and much more) local proxy you could use alongside with as many browsers you just whish. Forget about filters like AdBlock+ which are poor improvisations compared with a mighty tool like Proxomitron. Another option as a local proxy to play whith would be Tor (SOCKS Proxy/anonymyzer-service). However it makes little sense to use Tor on a regular basis since it will unnecessarily slow down your surfing. Just in case you will opt for Tor, I suggest not to install the whole Vidalia/Tor bundle for novices but only the Tor package for experts. @ desga2 Using an existing button like you are suggesting, makes IMHO much more sense since it would perfectly integrate optically as well with the rest of present items on the privacy bar.[/quote]
