I have my own server that I use as a SOCKS proxy(among other things). It's nice, and if you run a tor node at the same server at the same time it hides your traffic really well.

Heh. Proxychains-ng and a proxy switcher plugin for my browser make it really easy to intersperse this with regular traffic and tor traffic. Anything illegal/sekrit I use whonix for.

I've always figured, keeping my browsing habits completely anonymous isn't always necessary -- after all, I don't care if the NSA knows my mundane browsing habits. The proxy is for fooling my ISP.

(also it's technically shadowsocks -- I would never dream of using an unencrypted proxy!)
