Tails on VPS and RDP

I have a VPS with 1gb ram idling. Can I use Tails using custom iso option and install guacamole to access the environment remotely. This is more to do private browsing via RDP as my employee employer tracks all my requests and blocks them too.

    1GB RAM won't be a very useful for web browsing these days. It'll work a little bit, but web browser memory usage will cause crazy swapping before long.

    To get around blocking, use your VPS as a VPN or SOCKS proxy, and set your local web browser to go thru it. Then again, how about just playing on your cell phone instead? Do you really want to get fired?

    Well, Firefox or Chrome - changing proxy is disabled by admin. I cannot install any software like VPN client etc.

    You probably just need a web-based CGI proxy/anonymizer, such as:

    https://www.proxysite.com/

    You can install such software on your own server. I recomend SSL and password protection:

    Would something like this work?
    It's basically a Firefox instance that you can access using your browser (Or VNC).
    Though I'm not sure if 1GB RAM is enough, I've tried it before on a low RAM VPS and tabs kept crashing.
