When you use a proxy, it's like surfing the Web through a middleman. A proxy server gets information you want and sends it back to your browser. Anyone watching this transfer sees the proxy's IP address, not yours. Unfortunately, the popularity of proxies has encouraged hackers, Internet marketers and others to set up their own, which they to access user computers and to record the sites they visit. That's where proxy checkers come in.


As Charon is a free yet sophisticated proxy tester, the Elite Proxy site says it's the best. ProxySecurity also favours Charon and even explains how to use it. Charon is much more than just a proxy checker. You can use it to crawl the Web for public proxy lists and to check them against an internal proxy judge --- a script that analyses proxy quality. Extensive filtering options are available that let you set up custom parameters for your proxies. You can use these parameters to remove government, military and educational proxies and other proxies that have undesirable qualities. Charon's "Check Proxies" button scans your filtered proxies to confirm that they'll protect your anonymity without slowing down your connection. You can also use Charon's scanning engine to get more information about the proxy, including its location.

Web Proxy Checker

<p>SoftSea.com gives Web Proxy Checker four out of five stars for being free, fast and flexible. A wide range of proxies are supported, including HTTP, HTTPS, SOCKS 4 and SOCKS 5. Web Proxy Checker is multithreaded to take full advantage of the latest processors, and it has a proxy distribution server for using more than one proxy at a time. You can download proxy lists from the Web, choose custom settings for each user and detect a proxy's country and host URL. Web Proxy Checker can also run a DNSBL check to check proxies against a domain name service block list; this identifies malicious IP addresses.


The "j" in jProxyChecker stands for "Java," and the program is used to efficiently run routines. SoftSea.com gives jProxyChecker four out of five stars since it's free to use and able to identify active proxies, as well as to find out if they're anonymous and where their server is located. With jProxyChecker you can work with proxies by importing them from a hard drive or website and exporting them after you're done. You can even check the speed of a proxy connection.
