  • (2018-08-31) WeslyG Gibson: Поскольку PAC скрипты не даржат авторизацию. А городить огороды в этом не хочется, может кроме списка bypass - белый список? Ибо мне надо на ограниченное число включать проксю.
  • (2018-08-14) ventisca: So I found that this addon uses DNS resolve through proxy, which is good. People who use proxy wants everything pass through proxy anyway.

  • (2016-11-15) Nate Woods: Works perfectly for me (using SOCKS5 via a pac file and ssh -ND on Chrome for Ubuntu) after a minute or two of figuring out how to engage it. I have no experience in security so I can't speak to how well it helps hide you from repressive governments or anything like that.
