Helps you connect to and manage your proxy and VPN services
Proxy servers are streamlined Internet servers specially made to relay IP traffic from one set of addresses to another in order to bypass region-based restrictions and avoid censorship.
Thanks to proxy servers you can access the webpages and services of your favorite multimedia content provider from any location in the world. Thus, you can enjoy the content provided by BBC iPlayer, iTV, Hulu, Pandora, NetFlix and more.
Sales and marketing groups use proxy in order to perform GeoIP tests in order to check if the advertising and local content is reaching the targeted markets. As mentioned above, you can use proxy to avoid content filtering from nations or institutions that censor the web.
Quickly configure and use proxies with little to no effort
For the average Mac user, configuring the computer or browser to relay through any given proxy might prove to be a slightly complicated task. Luckily, FoxyProxy Basic manages to minimize the configuration process with a reduced set of simplified, browser-based controls.
As follows, FoxyProxy Basic acts as a straightforward proxy switcher that helps you to enable or disable the proxy with just a few clicks of a mouse button. It is worth mentioning the the browser add-on does not include access to paid proxy or VPN servers.
Easily customize FoxyProxy Basic and change the activation settings
What is more, FoxyProxy Basic comes with an animates status bar icon with user-definable colors, support for multiple proxies and it is capable to remember proxy usernames and passwords for you.
From the Options window you can add and manage proxies, as well as proxy subscriptions and change the global settings based on your preferences. As a result, you can hide or show the toolbar and status bar icon, and change the toolbar and status bar activation settings.
If you need to use proxies or VPN services, but you don’t like to spend time configuring your browser and Mac, then you should try out FoxyProxy Basic.
