Indicates whether the connection is encrypted with SSL (secure socket layer). Half a star indicates that SSL is supported between the proxy and website, but not between the client and the proxy.

or CGI Proxy
, but do not release/link to the source code.
Indicates whether the proxy handles webmail. This feature is tested with Yahoo Mail.
Indicates whether the proxy handles HTTP downloads; this feature is tested with a small .zip file.
Indicates whether the proxy handles popular social-network websites; this feature is tested with myspace.com and hi5.com.
Indicates that anonymized pages consistently take more than 5 seconds to download and render.
Indicates that the free trial expires after a (relatively low) transfer limit is reached. "Relatively Low" means that I used all or most of the limit by conducting the feature tests.
