Big disclaimer here chaps! Anything that you do that somehow messes up your computer, you will have to take on the chin and put down to experience. If you pick up any nasties from any of these proxy websites then we truly sympathise, but we can’t be held responsible for other people’s badness. What you do with your proxy connection is your business, but if you are infringing on some kind of cyber copyright laws, then although we don’t care, it’s your lookout if you get your collar felt. You don’t need to download, install or pay for anything for the following work, so don’t fall for that old trick. Using a proxy server is a notoriously unreliable way of connecting to the internet.
