Proxy Updater, is a list of free to use proxies, so you can access a wide range of sites
The difference between a reverse proxy and a standard proxy is the following.

A Reverse Proxy is setup for a user to access a single website that’s blocked by tunneling your Connection through their servers, Their server connects to the website you’re blocked from viewing, These require zero config these servers are setup so the User only needs to enter their http://

A Generic proxy, is setup for all users to access, ALL websites that’s blocked the difference Being, you need to manually enter these server details directly into you’re Browser this then Tunnels all you’re internet traffic, through their servers and not you’re Own network.

(Bypassing you’re ISP DNS Systems completely!)

The following are instructions to manually configure these above Web Browsers
To use these generic free public proxy servers. (IE, Safari, Chrome, Firefox)

Each web browser has a community of dev’s who create great plug-ins & Add-ons.
So check each web store for their users submitted plug-ins to make this even easier.
