Http proxy is a proxy server that acts as an intermediate server between client devices and the source server. This proxy server handles all the requests from client browser which seeks web files from the source server. This HTTP proxy routes all the client requests from a browser to the internet, hence it probably hides the client’s destination public IP. There were many types of proxy servers in common. Most of the proxy servers are nothing but the software programs i.e web browsers.

The proxy server action is a transparent process and nearly like the direct communication between the client and server. There were some additional heads or header requests that can be sent when the proxy server routing the request. In the rare case, web proxy servers can modify or add stuff to increase the caching speed.
