Get free working proxy from https://www.sslproxies.org/, https://www.us-proxy.org/, https://free-proxy-list.net/uk-proxy.html and https://free-proxy-list.net and use it in your script
FreeProxy class scrapes proxies from https://www.sslproxies.org/, https://www.us-proxy.org/, https://free-proxy-list.net/uk-proxy.html and https://free-proxy-list.net and checks if proxy is working. There is possibility to filter proxies by country and acceptable timeout. You can also randomize list of proxies from where script would get first working proxy.
You can use it in sending request through custom proxy, with selenium or wherever you want.
