The simplest way to do this is to run a Web proxy (like Squid) on your home
workstation. Let's say Squid is listening on port 3128 on your home machine.
Do something like this:
work$ ssh -L 3128:home_workstation:3128 home_firewall
Then in your Web browser, go to the "proxy" settings and tell it to use
"localhost, port 3128" as the proxy.
