A proxy script (as opposed to a proxy server) is generally a script, running on another server, that obtains web pages on your behalf. Proxy scripts are easier to use than proxy servers because they do not require any browser configuration changes. They are also a very useful option when you simply cannot alter your browser configuration - for instance, some service providers already use the proxy configuration options for web access.
Proxy scripts (also known as CGI proxies) work by modifiying the content of the requested page to send subsequent requests back to themselves (rather than to the original blocked site). This modification can often be site-dependant, particularly for sites like Facebook and Youtube, which results in occasional temporary reliability problems.

as Facebook, consider using one of our Proxy Servers instead.
