!!! Configuring Your Proxy Settings%%%
!! Information About Proxies's [definition of proxy |] is as follows:%%%
''n. pl. prox·ies''%%%
'' 1. A person authorized to act for another; an agent or substitute.'' %%%
'' 2. The authority to act for another.'' %%%
'' 3. The written authorization to act in place of another.''" %%%
Using a proxy server has several advantages involved including:%%%

  • No learning curve over normal web browsing
  • Anonymity
  • More secure if an authentication scheme is involved

!!Configuring Your Proxy Settings in K-Meleon
1. Start K-Meleon if you haven't already. %%%
2. You need to find a proxy first. If you already know which proxy you will be using, then go ahead and skip to step 3. Either search for a [proxy list |] or use my [personal favorite |] to find a nice anonymous or transparent proxy server. If possible, find one in your own country.%%%
3. Go to (Edit > Preferences > Proxy) or (Tools > Preferences > Proxy) depending upon which version of K-Meleon you're using. You should see something very similar to the following: %%%

5. Click "OK" and browse anonymously. %%%
!! Extra Info
