FoxyProxy Standard is a popular Firefox and Google Chrome add-on that will automatically switch an internet connection across one or more proxy servers based on URL patterns.
In other words, FoxyProxy Standard will automate the process of editing Firefox's Connection Settings dialog. FoxyProxy switches proxy servers based on the loading URL and the switching rules you define.
Additionally, animated icons will show you when a proxy is in use and an advanced logging shows you which proxies were used and when.
QuickAdd allows you to easily create new URL patterns. FoxyProxy is fully compatible with Portable Firefox, has better support for PAC files than Firefox itself, and supports more than 34 languages.
The add-on is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
NOTE: To install the FoxyProxy Standard for Chrome, drag and drop the downloaded .crx file onto the Chrome Extensions window.
Here are some key features of "FoxyProxy Standard":
· Animated statusbar/toolbar icons show you when a proxy is in use
· Define multiple proxies
· Define which proxy to use (or none!) for arbitrary URLs using wildcards, regular expressions, whitelists, blacklists, and other conveniences
· No more wondering whether a URL loaded through a proxy or not: FoxyProxy optionally logs all URLs, including which proxy was used (if any), which pattern was matched, timestamps, etc.
· Out-of-the-box support for Tor with the unique Tor Wizard - zero configuration!
· Temporarily or permanently dedicate all URLs to go through a particular proxy
· Temporarily or permanently disable use of a proxy
· Automatically add blocked sites to a proxy and have them reload through the proxy
· Optional status bar information about which proxy is currently in use
· Complete Proxy Auto-Config (PAC) support
· Download a link using one of your defined proxies with a simple right-click (coming soon)
· Unobtrusive presence, stable execution, premier support
· Optionally force Firefox to perform DNS lookups through a SOCKS4a/5 server. Note that Firefox without FoxyProxy always performs DNS lookups through a SOCKS5 server if you've defined one. Only with FoxyProxy can you instruct Firefox to not use defined SOCKS5 servers for DNS lookups.
