I would like to imitate that I'm browsing sites from another country, and as far as my knowledge goes, that can only be done with either VPS or Proxy servers. Note that I am looking for a solution that is completely free.

Again, as far as my knowledge goes:

You cannot get a VPS for free, unless you are okay with ads, slowness and other similar inconveniences, which I am not.

Proxy servers also cost money, unless they are slow and possibly offer other inconveniences, which I am, again, not okay with.

So in short, is there any solution that wouldn't offer any inconvenience, is completely free and doesn't require me to have 2 PCs?

P.S. I'm using both Windows and Linux, if that matters, mostly Windows though.

Intimate - to communicate delicately and indirectly - "Why hello mister server, I know you think I'm in the USA but please let me assure you I'm actually in merry old England drinking tea with the Queen and that's not the sound of my SUV crashing into my gun-mounted jetski, oh no..." – Chopper3 Sep 19 '12 at 17:53
The question was also there to ask IF there are any implications for using such services, not only to get links to them... – Jack Sep 19 '12 at 18:01

You can use any of the IP's from the proxy list . Add the Foxy proxy plugin in your firefox and switch to what ever ip you want.

Thanks, that answers the link part, unfortunately the question was closed off without the implication part getting answered. :/ – Jack Sep 19 '12 at 18:02

You mean you did a Google search for "free web proxy" and didn't even find a link to HMA or any other likewise sites??
