Beware of trouble - it may be bigger than you want. That said, it is possible to sidestep proxies by viewing the output of an unproxied browser. F'rinstance, I log into my home machine from work via SSH. I forward X traffic via SSH, so I can, from a terminal session on my home machine, open a web browser. I see what my home computer accesses, because that information is sent to me down my SSH tunnel. This is not speedy or particularly trivial.
The advice I'd give is that conversation is easier and safer than circumvention.
