I'm outside the USA and UK and currently use a VPN to access geo blocked content (Hulu, Netflix etc) but don't like my entire connection running through the VPN (I need a direct connection for gaming etc). I've installed Proxy Switchy! in Chrome and am hoping to find a US based proxy to use instead of the VPN. - Does anyone know if a proxy in the browser alone can get around the geo blocks Hulu etc use or do Flash/Silverlight plugins reveal real IPs? - What are some good proxy providers with US and UK I could look at? - For my purposes what would the difference between a HTTP Proxy and a SCOKSv4 or v5 host? Cheers ps. I couldn't find any documentation on Proxy Switchy, does anyone know how it works, is it changing the proxy for Chrome only or is it changing it at an OS level?
