that's not part of a standard url, there's no way to do that. you're probably thinking of an anonymizer server like a cgiproxy implementation, where you would use a url like that. that's not a normal proxy though. persaonlly in firefox i use a switchproxy extension to quickly flick it on or off when i want to.

Ok I knew there was a way to do it here is what I found:

http://proxy.magusnet.com/-_-http://www.google.com

You can link as many as you want creating a proxy chain.

Or to use a single proxy you can use:

http://anon.free.anonymizer.com :80/http://www.google.com

Here is where I found the information:

I tried this on my comp at work with a proxy and it did work but I'm not sure if it works with xp and the new ie or linux and firefox.

well like i said, it's an anonymizer proxy, not a real proxy. also it will be browser independent, as it just chucks back the original page from a different location

not to sound stupid but what is the differance between an anonymizer proxy and a real proxy? and I thought a proxy was suppose to give you the page you requested from a differant machine.
