How can I go to the same website but use a different IP address every time?

Does TOR do this? I want to access a site but not have it know that the same IP is hitting it everytime.

TOR or are these options or is there another tool for this?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Why would you want to do this? I'm sure TOR is good for it, but I'm not sure I would like you to interact with my website. Your intentions sound less than honourable. – spender Nov 2 '10 at 0:11
If hit count is what you're after, you're better off grabbing a huge public proxy server list and making HTTP requests through those servers in randomized order. – John T Nov 2 '10 at 0:32

TOR, is an onion router. So yes, your IP address as it appears to the website will be altered than if you were to directly connect to it.
