Editors' Review

Looking for a way to block ads and speed up your browser? MyProxy is worth giving a try.

MyProxy is as a proxy server between your ISP and your browser, so all your Internet requests go through this application. It runs from the taskbar, where an unobtrusive icon appears. Right-clicking the icon pops-up a menu for selecting options, including level of filtering (we liked the mode names: Optimal and Paranoid); whether to block Flash; what to cache; a banner blocker; and more. Message and dialog boxes were unadorned but functional and easy to read.

MyProxy performed well in all our tests. We liked the display of stats daily, weekly, monthly, and total reports for megabytes sent and received and how we could select the connection to view: All, Local Area Network, or Internal Stats. This application is easy enough for novices to quickly grasp, and the designer should be commended for efforts to make it so. Some of the areas the application addresses may be outside a novices immediate understanding, but frequent use will bring familiarity. Meanwhile, any increase in performance speed was only slightly noticeable, but we saw some time savings when we visited graphics-intensive sites.

The trial limit is adequate. Some users may balk at the price, but power users will have to determine if the savings in time and effort provided by MyProxy make it worth the price. Either way, its an interesting application that's worth trying.
