Image from store Proxy Switcher and Manager
Description from store "Proxy Switcher and Manager" extension brings the power of proxy management to your browser. Using this extension, you can configure your browser to use a proxy server without altering your operating system's network. The toolbar icon indicates the current type of proxy your browser is using (No Proxy Mode (Direct), Auto-detect Proxy Mode, Manual Mode (SOCKS and HTTPS), and PAC Script Mode). The extension is designed such that no resource is used while the panel is closed. Features: 1. Supports profiles to store multiple proxy servers and switch between them when needed 2. Supports inline PAC script 3. Supports refreshing the PAC script from a remote server 4. Displays failed resources and the reason they failed 5. Supports badge text and toolbar color to differentiate between proxy profiles Notes: 1. The toolbar icon is an indicator of the current proxy type. Place your mouse over the toolbar button to get more info. 2. The badge text displays the number of failed resources. Opening the panel, you can check these resources by pressing the "Error Log" button (this feature is disabled by default). 3. It is possible to search for free transparent or anonymous proxy servers in the manual proxy tab. Why do I need this extension to alter my proxy? By using a proxy server that sits intermediary between your computer and the internet, you can hide your real location or access websites that would otherwise be blocked. Proxy Switcher and Manager is an open-source project.

  • (2023-03-03) Umair Ayub: cant save custom proxy
  • (2023-02-19) Luis Ramalho: Search proxy seems to work. Confusing Save and Delete option. Clicking over the green checkmark deletes the proxy, while clicking over the yellow cross actually saves the proxy.

  • (2022-12-20) armin nekooee: very good. how to I add geoip for all domain of the country in the direct input? I added geoip:it but doesn't work
  • (2022-10-26) Bob: Good
  • (2022-08-22) M F: Good options but 1. doesn't set colour selection correctly when restarting Firefox (reverts to 'Direct' colour but actual proxy setting remains on whatever other proxy option you had before restarting the browser) and 2. on Chrome colour selection now doesn't work at all
  • (2022-08-06) 李宇: very useful for me you can manage your proxy with this extendion
  • (2022-06-29) Paul: Can you add an input "Add by String" to tab "Manual Proxy"? Just copy and paste proxy strings like "" or "socks5://" or "" (http type by default). So you don't have to enter ip, port and proxy type separately, they will fill automatically.

  • (2022-04-24) Naufal Aksara: not work!!!
  • (2021-11-02) yolemon: I spent my time installing this extension, but could not find an opportunity to enter the username and password for my proxy. Now all really working proxies are paid. This means that you need to provide a username and password. How do I do it here?
  • (2021-06-15) Andrey Mex: просто и приятно пользоваться
  • (2021-04-14) Andrey Lappo: Нет возможности назначить использование прокси только для выбранных адресов.
  • (2021-03-29) Hugh Hawke: multi proxy profile, How to add multi profile at proxy switcher. inlcuding http, PAC type
  • (2021-03-03) Black Cat: At first, the extension worked pretty amazingly. But these days I found that the extension goes crazy sometimes e.g. I set PAC script like this in a chrome profile function FindProxyForURL(url, host) { return "PROXY localhost:3148"; } but for some reason, sometimes when I launch the chrome browser and the profile, the script may be garbled like this var pac_engine = (function module_fn(){var E={module_fn:module_fn},g_pac_engine={},g_log=[],local_redir;var regex_url2host... This bug causing me two issues. 1. where's my previous script? 2. what!? don't tell me I'm now accessing to this website without the proxy but with my plain IP... Thus, rated 3/5 for now. please fix & update the issue, devs. Thanks.
  • (2021-02-05) Saro: This is great and I'm using a local proxy (Manual Proxy) but I was wondering if it is possible to exclude a website from using the proxy. For example I want a website to always stay on "Direct" mode. How can I do that?
  • (2021-02-04) Gustavo Montoya (S1ragusA): Acabo de probar esta noche más de 10 extensiones de proxies, y esta es la ganadora indiscutible, la mejor interfaz, detecta correctamente cualquier proxy, busca proxies gratuitos automáticamente y al encontrarlos los activa automáticamente ¡Esta extensión es perfecta!

  • (2018-06-21, v:0.3.9) Evgeny Prokofyev: Toggle mode
    Too many operations to switch between proxy variants. It would be better to add settings for it - select two favourite variants and switch between them by single click on toolbar icon.
  • (2018-06-19, v:0.3.9) Joshua Jones: Different Chrome sign ins?
    If I have 5 different Chrome windows open, set to different accounts, can they all have different proxies?
