There are a couple of ways to do that:
1. Use online sites such as or one of the online proxies you can find here:
2. Alternatively, you can use softwares that will act as proxies such as TOR (The Onion Router) which you can find here or TORPark - a FireFox version that comes with TOR built in.
There are some other applications such as HideIP but they cost money ($29) and slow you down a bit.
