proxy tools

Hi everybody : ) 

the latest issue of PC magazine featured an article about a security application called Getanonymous.

It indicated that the application makes use of the proxy technology to hide a user’s actual IP address on the Internet.
It also said that the application rating among users was quite good.
Any one tried this app.?

no, but there are another proxy tools around that helps you surf anonymously.

Here's a starting point:

There was an article I read, I think it was in Wired about a proxy that used every other computer connected to it's network to grab a page, so requests came from all sorts of different IP addresses. They talked about this in the context of China and the great firewall (pun not intended) they have that prevents people in China from getting to certain sites. Using a tool like this, they would be able to.
