In a previous article we described the different ways to surf the internet anonymously and hide your IP; not all the methods we have already seen are successful though to browse blocked sites, since the block is often at the IP level or at the corporate service level (an administrator can block access to Facebook for his employees during working hours for example).
Scopriamo in questa pagina i migliori proxy e i programmi per navigare sui siti bloccati in el paese o sui siti oscurati dagli amministratori di sistema.

What does proxy mean?
a proxy è another computer (or better still a server) that diverts all our traffic making yours appear as an IP instead of ours; it acts as a "filter", thus intervening in our navigation and making an IP appear different from ours.
Proxies are used in offices and businesses to prevent employees from wasting time on gaming, chat and non-business sites.
For those who surf the web use a proxy program means hiding the real IP address, covering it with another so as not to recognize the origin and location of the computer used.
In this way you can also visit sites that are blocked in your country due to copyright or because they are blocked at the IP level by the judiciary.
With a computer at home you can use public proxies which are on external servers to be set on the browser.
Why use a proxy
There can be two reasons for using these tools:
1) Navigate on sites that for legal reasons have been blocked in a country or in the whole world and that, when you access them, a message appears that can say: "unable to view the page", "the account of this site is been suspended "and the like.
If you know a place overshadowed, you have to use tools that overcome the blocks.
2) Much more simply to browse sites blocked by office proxy, jobs, schools and universities and there the most common example these days and definitely Facebook.

The best free web proxies they are listed on another page and do not require you to set the proxy on your browser, they are simply sites to open other sites, with a different IP.
Many proxies offer advanced features such as SSL (data traffic encryption), fast access time and load control (so that they can offer good browsing speed to all users.
Normally surfing with a proxy is relatively slower than surfing without, but it's all about choosing a proxy that's fast enough, close enough to your location and with adequate hardware.
Le public proxy lists instead they are IP addresses to be entered in the browser, as indicated in the guide linked a few lines above.
Among the best lists we have:
- Alive Proxy
- US Proxy List
Just open one of the sites above, choose the fastest proxy and set it in the browser or PC so as to exploit it while browsing as seen in the guide reported a little above.
It is also possible to install the free Proxy program Privoxy, which provides a service to surf freely covered behind their server.
After installing Privoxy, the proxy must be set on the browser at 127.0.0.1 with port 8118.
Free programs to browse blocked sites
Below, instead we see the best free programs that allow you to browse the internet with a proxy variable and are methods for browsing blocked and blacked-out sites; it must be premised that these programs or systems to overcome the blocks must be tested case by case, some work in certain circumstances, others in others.
Tor is a computer network with which you can connect to hide browsing and get a different IP at every opportunity.
Access to this anonymous network is safe and free, so everyone can use it (although in many cases the performance is much lower than browsing without filters).
We covered the Tor topic in another guide accessible here -> Tor guide to navigate with foreign ip on blocked sites.
If we want to quickly access the Tor network without too many configurations we can use a browser ready to use and configured for privacy and anonymity such as Tor Browser, downloadable for free from here -> Tor Browser.
This browser is based on Mozilla Firefox and is optimized with extensions and settings designed to achieve maximum privacy and maximum performance when we browse through the Tor network.
A very powerful program for bypass any kind of block also the government filters is Ultrasurf, whose main page is accessible from here -> ultrasurf.
The advantages of UltraSurf are: its speed and being the only one of these programs to use Internet Explorer which, often, in offices and companies is the only browser that can be used and that does not force the user to use two different browsers.
With Ultrasurf you can see any web page in your interest even with multimedia objects, Java and Flash.
Once you close your browser and finish browsing the internet with UltraSurf, your Internet Explorer history, cookies and cache are deleted without leaving any traces on your computer.
The latest version of Ultrasurf is also compatible with Google Chrome.
Among the best alternatives to Ultrasurf there is certainly Freegate, considered by many users the best proxy program.
We can download this program from here -> Freegate.
Once started, it assigns a US IP that allows you to use all web applications that only work in the United States, America and removes the block from any site while maintaining a practically constant connection speed, it seems almost not to be under a proxy.
Definitely the best choice for those who want an anonymous connection at maximum speed.
Another extension we can try to hide our IP and visit blocked sites is AnonymoX, available for Mozilla Firefox from here -> AnonymoX.
Just add it to the web browser and, at the appropriate time, choose one of the available proxies to be able to be connected from abroad, so as to bypass any type of filter or censorship.
The extension shows in advance the computational capacity of the proxy so that you can benefit from good performance.
Un'altra tecnologia che possiamo sfruttare per navigare sui siti bloccati e oscurati in el paese è quella offerta da Hola!, una via di mezzo tra una VPN e un server proxy che ci permetterà di assumere l'IP di qualsiasi altra nazione, così da poter navigare su qualsiasi sito oscurato o bloccato in el paese.
The usage policy of Hola! is special: all users become part of the Hola network! as soon as it is installed on the browser or on the PC, sharing a small part of the network and PC resources.
Se utilizziamo Hola! quindi verremo reindirizzati nella rete creata da tutti gli utenti connessi e potremo apparire con l'IP di qualcun altro senza alcun problema (così come altri utenti di Hola! potranno utilizzare in qualsiasi momento il nostro IP per risultare dall'el paese); ecco spiegato perché il servizio è gratuito.
To be able to take advantage of Hola! we will have to install the extension for Google Chrome using the link here -> Hola!
Proxify it is a suitable program in places like the work office or the university to use those blocked applications.
We can download it from here -> Proxify.
Once downloaded we will simply have to set on the application's network settings, the address of the corporate or school proxy, the port and authentication if it is required by the proxy.
With this program we can also set specific programs so that they can use the proxy for certain ports or for all ports used.
7) Proxy switcher
Proxy switcher is similar to Proxifier and can be downloaded from here -> Proxy switcher.
After downloading and installing it as a proxy (from Edge or IE Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings) you enter 127.0.0.1 and 3128 as the port.
At start-up Proxyswitcher starts with a guided wizard with which it automatically searches for available proxies to navigate with; once the list has been updated, it will be sufficient to choose the proxy with the lowest ping value.
