Proxy for Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer is a true symbol of the Internet and the «dinosaur» of the entire web industry. Perhaps no one would not know about its existence if they touched a computer at least once. Now the browser does not take a leading position in popularity, but this does not mean that it is not used.

A fairly large layer of users actively uses it for their purposes, considering it the best option for themselves. Quite pleasant sides are available. The load on the machine is record low, which helps with the automation of some goals, without damaging the hardware.

Browser support is provided by Microsoft and many features and technologies have been added to the browser over time. Many developers and SMM specialists quite often use this browser for their purposes, due to its convenience and low load. For everyday use, Internet Explorer really will not be the best option.

Of course, for good automation of processes without the risk of getting locked, we strongly recommend using proxy servers. Otherwise, you most likely won’t succeed. Let’s analyze the existing possibilities in a little more detail.

In total, there are 2 basic types of proxy servers — paid and free.

The origin of free proxy servers is itself a little ambiguous, which casts a lot of doubt on their way of exploitation.

Free proxies are in the public domain, and sometimes they appear there simply by mistake.

Such servers can be exposed by providers to check their performance and tests for network load.

In some cases, such proxies are the stupidity and inattention of a system administrator at one of the enterprises, who simply forgot to close access. However, at the very first audit and check of their servers, everything returns to normal, because they find the reasons for the inadequate load and close access.

Fraudsters and other attackers also put various proxies in the public pool for their purposes. Mostly to get hold of your information and data, of course. Such IPs can be considered viral at all because they only harm you.

And there are many more such examples of ridiculous appearance, we strongly do not recommend using the services of free proxies if you do not want to harm your endeavors. Of course, it cannot be denied that there are quite worthy options among them, but you will spend a lot of time and nerves searching for them and often lose your accounts in various web resources.

We can conclude: that free proxies are not our friends if the goals are relatively serious.
