"Extremely unreliable with Socks proxies."

April 18, 2012  |  By spartain

 |  Version: ProxyWay 5.0

Pros

Can't really think of any...it's free.

Cons

It claims Socks4 and Socks5 proxies to be 'good' when they are 'bad'.
Claims many Socks proxies to be high anonymous when they are actually transparent (not anonymous).
Only allows maximum of 100 proxies for testing.
The proxy website lists provided are next to useless.

Summary

This program can prove to be a real timewaster if you want to find working Socks4 and Socks5 proxies that are 'High Anonomous'. They will appear in the list and then - if you are lucky (it often doesn't happen) - it will automatically proceed to check them. If it doesn't do this automatically you have to highlight them and select 'Check'. If you are luckier still, it may even give you two or three Socks proxies that it claims are working and are 'High Anonymous', but when you install them into your browser they either don't work or are not anonymous at all. Many of these even cause Internet Explorer to refuse to open, the only way of clearing it being to go into Google Chrome's proxy settings (they share same settings) and unticking that.

I'm not surprised it's free, because if it was paid for they'd have to give everyone refunds. There must actually be a decent working proxyfinder out there...somewhere, because this ain't one.

February 21, 2010  |  By jtwils2000

"Didn't hide my IP"

April 03, 2009  |  By dmlp1960

 |  Version: ProxyWay 5.0

Pros

Never got it to work.

Cons

Clicked the auto config, clicked on... IP address was still not hidden. After uninstalling program, my Windows Live Messenger was inaccessible. Followed there recommendation to reset proxy setting to no avail. Had to perform a sys. restore.

Summary

Don't know if I messed up or program didn't work for me. Probably the former. lol But I tried awhile to get it to hide my IP and it didn't.

"Beware of bifrose.gen trojan when executing proxyway"

March 04, 2009  |  By senyin

 |  Version: ProxyWay 5.0

Pros

None. Never got chance to try it.

Cons

My spyware detection software reported finding bifrose.gen trojan when starting up Proxyway after installation.

Summary

Somehow, this version of the .exe is infected by the bifrose.gen trojan. I immediately uninstalled and removed the software after seeing the warning message, so I did not get a chance to try out the capabilities of the tool. Please watch out for this trojan.

"Best proxy program i have found to date"

February 17, 2009  |  By boarder1042

 |  Version: ProxyWay 5.0

Pros

Change proxys really fast
Easy to use
Automatically sets itself up
Option to update proxy list

Cons

It could be redone to be a bit easier on the eyes.

Summary

After installing it took me 2 minutes to figure out how to use it. Just click the auto config and when it finishes click on. If you want to change your proxy just click off then on again. Simply the best program out there at this time.

I forgot to mention. This blows *** out of the water as far as speeds go.
