Greatly improve Firefox's proxy process with this freeware add-on. FoxyProxy's multitabbed interface sports multiple check-box options, pull-down menus, and simple entry boxes. Taken together, the numerous items might appear daunting to novice users, but the program's detailed documentation explains the process well.

The most helpful aspect of FoxyProxy is its multiple proxy feature. You can easily create proxies that are called only for sites matching defined patterns. Setting the patterns is very easy using wild cards and regular expressions. Configuring FoxyProxy to work with Tor is even easier using the app's Tor wizard. The many settings also make this app flexible enough to fit most proxy needs. Whitelists and blacklists are a snap to set and are defined for each proxy. Spending just a little time setting up this utility and you could easily define select sites to connect directly, while others bypass work filters through appropriate proxies.

FoxyProxy is easy to install, fully transparent when required, and free. Any Firefox user who ever uses proxies should install and take the time to master this tool.

"Almost Perfect"

October 26, 2012  |  By ryanohoro

 |  Version: FoxyProxy 4.0.1

Pros

FoxyProxy is important in my work where I have a lot of different clients whom I must work with and each set of websites requires a different proxy for use. The configurable regular expression matching URLs is perfect.

Cons

FoxyProxy can be a little difficult to configure properly, if you're not careful you could end up sending traffic to the wrong place.

Summary

I use FoxyProxy every day in my work and it's indispensable.

"Cumbersome and with few benefits"

April 22, 2010  |  By steelburner

 |  Version: FoxyProxy 2.19.1

Pros

Easy to install

Cons

I didn't see any benefits to using this software. Others were more functional and simpler to use. I uninstalled it after a few days.

Summary

Others may see benefits that my (admittedly, limited) usage of the product didn't bring out. For me? It just wasn't worth it.
