What is an open proxy?

An open proxy is a link between you and the rest of the internet. When using it, your request first goes to the proxy, which on its own behalf redirects it further. When people talk about an open proxy, they often mean an anonymous open server. One of its tasks is to hide the IP addresses of clients. While some see it as a way for unscrupulous citizens to break the law, there is also a positive view. For instance, this is a good option to receive uncensored content in undemocratic countries.
The difference between this type of proxy and the usual one is that it allows almost any client to make requests through itself.
