Surf the Web Anonymously With Firefox Add-on Phproxy

There are several web based proxy servers available to surf the internet anonymously or as from another country. The Firefox add-on (Firefox 3 – 4) Phzilla helps you view a webpage or surf the internet using the PHProxy (a type of web based proxy server) proxy servers. It is very easy and convenient to use.

How to install and use PHProxy on Firefox?

1. Install PHProxy extension from Mozilla add-on site just like other add-ons (click on ‘Add to Firefox’ button to install), and then restart your Firefox browser.

2. Now you’re ready to use anonymous proxy server. Open a website that you want to visit. Hover your mouse at the address bar and click on the PHProxy icon (P) or use the shortcut key Ctrl + Shift + Q to open the site by proxy.


3. You can also open a link or search result by proxy. For that, just right click on the link and select ‘Open by Phproxy’.

4. You can change the proxy server, update the proxy and adjust the privacy level by right clicking the PHProxy on the location bar. (Privacy level means, how you access a web site – via PHProxy, Cache or both).

5. From the options menu (right click PHProxy and select Options), you can change the default PHProxy server, add or remove a proxy, enable/disable cookie, JavaScript, etc.


Note: Do not use proxy when using sites that requires your credentials, such as banking, email, etc. You can read more about PHProxy at here: http://inbasic.mozdev.org/root/ext1/home/index.htm

  2. It’s working fine here. I think Phproxy servers are located at Germany or surrounding places. I don’t know SNL can access there!
