I am unable to get high speed internet at my particular location and am stuck on dialup. I am using a web accelerator, but it doesn't work on websites that use SSL such as Amazon. So browsing for certain items takes forever since the images can't be compressed.

A web developer told me I might be able to get around SSL by going through a proxy. Does anyone know how that might work?

I'll point out that I'm just interested in getting around SSL for browsing online stores only. I would not use a proxy for any sensitive data.

Is it just SSL it has diffaculty with or any site that uses HTTPS? For instance, does it work with TLS? I ask because with MSIE, when using a proxy, it defaults to HTTP 1.1, which I wonder could be the work around. The problem with this is using a proxy also usually slows the connection down, which would be counter productive. Instead, have you tried Amazon's mobile version, m.amazon.com without the accelerator?
