I understand that a proxy is defined like IP : port, like 11.22.33.44:5678
Many websites talk about proxy "threads". I've done a search; cannot find an answer to:
A "thread" is also called a "simultaneous connection", but what does that mean?
Please describe a detailed example of how that would be used.
How and why are multiple Threads created / used / implemented?
Well, I can guess as to the Why: to do multiple operations at the same time. But how?

When asked, one proxy vendor replied with:
Each port allows 50 connections per port. One connection can handle 5 to 10 threads.

What th' heck does that mean?

OR, to waste as little of your time as possible,
please point me toward some further reading on the subject.

Thanks.
