If you are just searching for http proxy you can try
polipo and if you are seaching for anonimity on the web you can try
tor. Tor used to have
torbutton plugin for firefox but seems they give their own browser. What I recommend is search for an addon to switch proxies in firefox. So what you can do is install
sudo apt-get install tor
and configure polipo to work with tor:
cd /etc/polipo/ sudo wget https://gitweb.torproject.org/torbrowser.git/blob_plain/HEAD:/build-scripts/config/polipo.conf -O config
If you use
chrome/chromium you can setup torbutton like setup through this
If you just want one-time proxy just install
privoxy [BUT NOT BOTH]
Go to firefox > preference > advanced > network and setup manual proxy with
ip: localhost port: 8118
You don't need an application for that - you need a proxy in India. Then you need to enter the address of the proxy in your browser's settings. For Firefox it is Edit - Preferences - Advanced - Network - Settings.
But, normally, most sites allow user to change the auto-detected country/currency anyway... have a better look
