A web proxy is becoming more and more important in today’s internet. Schools and Company's tend to block sites pretty quickly nowadays. It is especially irritating when the ban is directed towards just a few websites and not every website in that category. A Web Proxy might be able to sneak past this policies and display the site in your browser even though it is banned in the network.
How does a web proxy work ?
A network bans a website either by its IP, its name or part of its name. A web proxy makes only shows its own address to the network and not the actual destination of the user. The admin of the network will think everything is fine and you are free to reach the site that is banned. The only thing that might happen is that the admin is banning the web proxy as well, but this is not a big deal either. Hundreds of web proxy's exist, just switch to a new one and you are ready to visit the banned site again.
