What is a proxy tester?

A proxy tester is a software tool designed to assess the performance and reliability of proxies. Proxies act as intermediaries between a user and the internet, allowing them to browse the web anonymously or bypass certain restrictions. A proxy tester evaluates proxies by measuring their response times, latency, throughput, uptime, stability, and success rates. It helps users identify proxies that offer optimal speed, reliability, and consistent connections. By providing real-time feedback and comprehensive reports, a proxy tester enables users to make informed decisions when selecting and managing proxies for their specific needs.

How does this proxy tester work?

The PlainProxies Proxy Tester utilizes the power of curl, a command-line tool and library for making HTTP requests, to perform proxy testing. It follows a straightforward approach to assess proxy availability. Using the HTTP HEAD request method, the proxy tester sends a minimal request to the specified proxy server. By examining the response, it determines whether the proxy is accessible or not. This method allows for quick and efficient testing, focusing on the proxy's availability rather than fetching complete web content. By leveraging curl and its capabilities, the PlainProxies Proxy Tester ensures a reliable evaluation of proxy servers, enabling users to make informed decisions based on the availability and accessibility of their proxies.
