The Google Web Proxy
Long story short, surf the web from http://www.google.com/xhtml to get a proxied & simplified version of any page you want to visit. May bypass corporate firewalls, may not. May provide some level of anonymity, may not. Breaks up long pages into smaller ones, and you can turn off images.
Short Story Long
Surfing from my PDA, a month or two ago I noticed that when I visit a site through Google, I don't actually leave Google's servers. They serve up a version of the page that's been formatted for my PDA - simplified layout, the option to turn off graphics, and truncated pages so it won't overload the limited RAM I have, etc. The Google Proxy :: MarkTAW.com
