What do the different levels mean? (e.g Transparent, Elite, Anonymous)

Transparent Proxy: A proxy that forwards traffic but does disclose your IP address. This are great for trying to get to websites that your work or school network might be trying to block and your not worried about the website knowing your IP address. 

Anonymous Proxy: Like a Transparent proxy except it does hide your IP address but it also identifies the website your going to that you are using a proxy. 

Elite Proxy: Elite proxies hide your IP address and do not identify that you are using a proxy. When you use an Elite proxy the website you are going to assumes you are coming from the network that proxy is hosted on.
