Where Can I Find Public Proxy Servers?

The answer is: everywhere. The problem is, you aren’t the only one looking for them. Proxies are hosted and taken down rapidly. Some collapse under the weight of hordes of proxy-seeking users.

You’re essentially embarking on a game of cat and mouse — and you’re the mouse.

Some sites will provide lists of proxies, including Public Proxy Servers, Proxz or Stay Invisible. Even though these sites offer hundreds of available proxy servers, half of them won’t work and many others might be blacklisted. Sometimes you have to try out twenty servers before you hit one that works.
