What is Multi-thread Usage?

If you're using a proxy server and notice it's employing multiple threads on one page, there could be a few reasons behind it.

Firstly, it might aim to boost the proxy server's performance and efficiency. With multiple threads, it can handle many requests at once, speeding up the process and enhancing user satisfaction.

Secondly, it could be a workaround for website or server limitations on request numbers per IP address. By using multiple threads and IPs, the proxy server can surpass these limits effectively.

Lastly, employing multiple threads might serve as a security measure. By spreading requests across threads and IPs, it makes it tougher for websites or servers to track user activity and maintain anonymity.

In short, proxy servers may use multiple threads on a page to improve performance, surpass request limitations, and enhance security.
