Setting up SSH tunnel with PuTTY for web browsing

I need to use SSH tunnel to perform web browsing in WiFi hotspots. The procedures for setting up SSH tunnels with PuTTY are as follows:

Web Browser: Use proxy, connect to port 7070

PuTTY: normal SSH login + tunnel

The tunnel should have local port 7070 forward to IP assuming there is a squid daemon running on IP listening on port 3778.
