I just got a bunch of free proxies from random countries and entered them in

You can stay on 1 or randomly switch through them over a amount of time you chose.

Honestly, Felino, is it any of your business?

Proxy Switcher is a good one, lets you choose region from a huge downloaded list of proxies or you can enter the IP of your own proxy.

Thats a tad harsh, but just use a web proxy.

For short term things only.

That doesn't help with other protocols.

Remember, its very easy for someone who runs a website to see your "real" IP. A Proxy wont hide it 100%. Someone with some knowledge about computers and such can easily trace through the proxy and find your IP.
