If you want to proxy your web browsing through SSH, first establish the tunnel:

ssh -ND 9999 username@username.webfactional.com

After you've logged in, the terminal window will appear to hang - that's normal.

At that point, you have a SOCKS proxy running over SSH on localhost:9999. To use it, you can either:

  • Configure your browser to use the proxy via your browser preferences, or...
  • Configure your entire OS to use the proxy via your network preferences

Hope that helps!
