The server downloads the page into its memory, and then displays it to the user.

From the point-of-view (in the technical sense) of the host hosting the target site, only the server visited.

This means only the server's IP will be logged, and not the user's (Ref: wikipedia)

What is the Cache option
A cache is a collection of data duplicating original values stored elsewhere. In other words, a cache is a temporary storage area where frequently accessed data can be stored for rapid access (ref. wikipedia). Once the data is stored in the cache, it can be used in the future by accessing the cached copy rather than re-fetching or recomputing the original data. By using cache options of PhZilla [Right click on the P icon in statusbar > Privacy level] the cached version of data on Google, Coral, or Wayback machine will be loaded, so your machine IP will not be logged in real server. (For more protections, it is recommended to activate cache + proxy together)


Images do not load when the page is opened by PhZilla add-on
There are two different cases: 1. Showing images is turned off from Options (Right click on the P Icon, go to the second tab, and turn it on) 2. The in-used server does not support this feature (Just try another server!)


How can I change the position of statusbar icon?
The easiest way is to use Organize Status Bar add-on created by y5.


What does "free web proxy" or "web proxy server" or "web proxy" mean?
In computer networks, a proxy server is a server (a computer system or an application program) that acts as an intermediary for requests from clients seeking resources from other servers. A client connects to the proxy server, requesting some service, such as a file, connection, web page, or other resource, available from a different server. The proxy server evaluates the request according to its filtering rules. For example, it may filter traffic by IP address or protocol. If the request is validated by the filter, the proxy provides the resource by connecting to the relevant server and requesting the service on behalf of the client. A proxy server may optionally alter the client's request or the server's response, and sometimes it may serve the request without contacting the specified server. In this case, it 'caches' responses from the remote server, and returns subsequent requests for the same content directly. (Wikipedia)
