Editors' review

This application promises to keep your identity anonymous while surfing the Internet, but falls short of most competitive software in its class. Since Protoport Proxy Chain doesn't include a help file, figuring out how to use it is an annoying guessing game. The program doesn't download proxy server lists or even a simple hyperlink to get started. After locating a Web site offering free proxies, you have to copy and paste the proxy addresses into the tired interface. Once you copy and paste, the software automatically begins verifying the status of each of the proxy server addresses. The working proxy servers can now be used to create a chain, although you're limited to two proxies during its trial. Since Protoport Proxy Chain only checks proxies, users concerned with surfing anonymity can easily find this feature and a lot more in other productive applications.

    "Very nice product"

    Version: Protoport Proxy Chain 1.1

    Pros

    Program is simple, and very fast. It even runs as a windows service! Seems like original reviewver does not know what F1 button for. When you press F1, you will get comprehensive help file. Also, cnet revewver never seen HTML source of pages with proxy list. These pages are encoded with Java Script. I'd like to see how he can fetch proxy list from such a pages. I bet he owns another silly proxy checker software in this section, and simply drops down his competitors :-)

    Cons

    Scheduling feature would be useful.
