Editors' Review

+
If you access the Internet via proxy servers, Proxy Switcher Standard not only finds the fastest ones but manages your proxy settings as well. On first start-up, it downloads lists of proxies from a few specialized sites (in our tests, it found more than 1,000). It then automatically tests the servers to filter out ones that are slow or malfunctioning. From there, you just click a button to start routing your traffic through the server of your choice. The program can also automatically switch among proxies, though unfortunately the trial version disables this crucial feature. That shortcoming aside, Proxy Switcher Standard is one of the most convenient proxy utilities we've seen.

"I agree with leukoplast the first Poster on this review"

November 23, 2008  |  By Crazy8zzz

 |  Version: Proxy Switcher Standard 3.1

Pros

I cant seem to find any!

Cons

The website is full of Lies, sure it finds proxy lists, but none of them seem to work when tested, This software is Useless and I feel sorry for anybody that has purchased this crap, they deserve a full refund!

Summary

You can tell the other Reviews are just the same person Copy Pasta, trying to make their worthless software look good! What a scam! I wouldn't even recommend this software to anybody if you paid me to do it! People deserve quality not some useless software that does nothing but waist peoples time!

I hope Cnet would delete this worthless software from their site and ban the person that is reviewing their own software trying to make it look good when its trash!

"Absolutely useless. Doesn't do anything"

April 12, 2008  |  By leukoplast

 |  Version: Proxy Switcher Standard 3.1

Pros

none

Cons

Everything about this program = fail. I searched over 1000 proxy servers, and not a single one of them actually worked. Every last one was dead. And the way the program is set up is beyond terrible, there is really no way to know what your doing. The tutorial = fail as well, what a pile of junk.

Avoid this program, its totally useless. Why on earth are people scoring this junk so high? Its worthless.

"Easy and Effective"

August 09, 2007  |  By Dumbledor123

 |  Version: Proxy Switcher Standard 3.1

Pros

This is a good program to use. It can automatically switch proxy's at any given time.

Cons

I have searched over 20,000 proxy's and found 3 private, 3 bad and the other 19,994 dead. This isn't the program but the lack of proxy's out there.

"Program OK - Lists Useless"

March 01, 2007  |  By emacee1701

 |  Version: Proxy Switcher Standard 3.1

Pros

As others have said, the program appears well designed, easy to set up and easy to use.

Cons

Out of 2000 servers listed and tested about 99% were dead. Trial version does not test for anonymity. I found only one that showed a different IP address for me. Only a few servers displayed pages correctly and allowed full functionality. Most would not not allow searches. Without a good list of anonymous-working-functional servers, the product is useless.

"secure internet surfing is easy"

November 27, 2006  |  By zonder_d

 |  Version: Proxy Switcher Standard 3.1

Pros

I've found that Proxy Switcher is an easy in use program that needs minimum time to setup it. It finds proxys, tests its, after that you can choose the fastest server from a working proxys list. Proxy Switcher can automatically enable proxy you need, so you won't go to the browser settings to enable proxy. I think Proxy Switcher is a program that can make easier your internet surfing.

"Anonymity at its Finest!"

January 15, 2006  |  By hrchongkong

 |  Version: Proxy Switcher Standard 3.1

Pros

It has several preinstalled server lists and also allows you to add "user defined" lists. The tests of available servers are very quick, allowing more time surfing than worrying about an "active" server. You can set it to switch to user defined or program proxys at set intervals for extra anonymity. This is crucial, because alot of the servers don't stay alive for very long, so switching and staying anonymous and online is a must!

Cons

It doesn't allow you to delete the "dead" server list from the "dead" folder. I have over 8000 proxys that are dead or were dead. Also the help manual/tutorials would leave a beginner to proxies wondering how it works. And no user forums or online help so to say. Expect up to a week for an email response for troubleshooting.

"Easy to set up, easy to use"

December 13, 2005  |  By Cybercrone1

 |  Version: Proxy Switcher Standard 3.1

Pros

I found Proxy Switcher easy to install and use and I'm quite impressed with it. There are several tutorials that are easy to follow, including how to set up Firefox browser to use Proxy Switcher (also easy), but be sure to watch them as it will take longer to set up the program if you don't. It takes a few minutes to have Proxy Switcher find all available free proxy addresses and test for the ones that are working and fastest, then you can add a selection of fastest working proxies to PS. Once that is done, using the list of proxies from the task bar couldn't be simpler or faster, including the option to use your direct connection to access a site where you must use your own IP (like your bank). There is a pro version of this program for ~$60 with added functionality that is not listed on Download.com yet. The popular Anonymizer is $60 a YEAR--5 years $300? No thank you!

Cons

Nothing so far!
