3. Use the proxies
Click the header of Delay column to make the fast proxies on the top.
Double click the proxy you want to use as the active proxy for your IE and Firefox.
You are now surfing the Internet through the proxy.

I have a couple of questions on it question:
when i am in elite checker i click on a proxy and the symbol on the right shows a connection then in the tutorial it says you are now connected to the internet through a proxy so when i log onto the internet through internet explorer 8 i am using that proxy, but how can i check this, is there a way of doing this, and what are the benefits of going through a proxy is it to hid my ip address if it is how dose it do that. Thanks to anyone that can help in advance.
