Web proxies are simply websites that pass across your Internet requests.

If effective, the website visited will only see the IP address of the web proxy, and not your own.
2. Leveraging on Free HTTP Proxy Servers
HTTP Proxies are also a type of relay service, but they are accessed by configuring your web browser rather than by typing a URL into a website. If setup to be “anonymous”, the websites you visit will only see the IP address of the HTTP proxy, and not yours. The positive thing about it, is that they’re not as easy to break as web proxies, because even annoying popups that appear in your browser will have to go through the relay; No ads will appear.
However, it has a good number of disadvantages. The first major disadvantage is that they are often not compatible with SSL, so they’re not safe for logging into membership sites, accessing email, or making purchases; they often run very slowly possibly due to many internet users, trying to make use of the server at same time. It’s really difficult to know who is operating the relays and whether they might want to intercept your data. Also, they’re difficult to find for France
