A proxy server is computer that functions as an intermediary between a
web browser (such as Internet Explorer) and the Internet. Proxy servers
help improve web performance by storing a copy of frequently used
webpages. When a browser requests a webpage stored in the proxy
server's collection (its cache), it is provided by the proxy server, which is
faster than going to the web. Proxy servers also help improve security by
filtering out some web content and malicious software.
Proxy servers are used mostly by networks in organizations and
companies. Typically, people connecting to the Internet from home will not
use a proxy server.
