From the developer:
This is a front-end graphical interface for using SSH as a secure SOCKS proxy, on Mac OS X. It is meant mainly for users who don't like using the command line.
Online proxies are a useful way to get around restrictive firewalls that block you from accessing parts of the internet. Maybe your corporate environment has rules against accessing sites like GMail from work, and you need to find out what time to pick up your kids after work.
