I'd say HTTP or SOCKS4/5 proxies are the way to go. There's alot of junk 
on the search engines, but there are a few consistantly good sites that 
have nice, active lists. Write yourself a little PHP script and stick it 
on a page somewhere, and connect back to that to see what it's revealing 
about you. You must be careful as some proxies will send X_FORWARDED_FOR 
or HTTP_VIA in the headers that will list your IP anyways. SOCKS/5's are 
the best, because of what they'll allow: most any sort of connection to 
most or all ports. Due to this, they get abused and some people might not 
find this idea acceptable, but it does work well.
