What is a Proxy?
Different Types of Proxies
A transparent proxy announces to the world that it's a proxy but still passes on your information. It provides no privacy improvements. However, it can provide a benefit by caching frequently accessed pages, and many companies also use this type of system for filtering purposes.
An anonymous proxy offers the caching benefits of a transparent proxy, while hiding your IP address by replacing it with either the proxy's IP or a random address. The downside to this approach is that sites that use address detection to establish unique users (online games, voting, some logins) will not be able to distinguish you from others in your domain. Of course, while this could be a nuisance at times, it could also be a bonus at other times.
Elite Proxy / Highly Anonymous Proxy
A highly anonymous proxy (often known as an elite proxy) makes your system look the same as a non-proxied system (with the proxy server's IP address). This provides the best security; however, all the caveats of an anonymous proxy are still present. In addition, an anonymous proxy's existence can be detected, and the server can suggest workarounds, but there's no way to detect an elite proxy. Again, that may be your goal, which makes an elite proxy the perfect tool for certain purposes.
