Don't let the lack of a Help menu keep you from using this free Firefox add-on. The intuitive user interface will have you managing proxies in no time.
SwitchProxy Tool offers an easy-to-read, if plain, toolbar interface. A simple drop-down menu allows for quick selection of a proxy, and buttons allow easy access to add, edit or remove servers. It's a minor issue, but the shortcut to the toolbar's Preferences didn't work for us, and we had to go into our Tools menu to access the utility's settings. Everything worked fine once we got there, and we were able to easily authorize the program to clear cookies and to reload the current page whenever we switched proxies. SwitchProxy Tool worked very well for us, allowing us to quickly and easily add new proxies, and switch back and forth between them.
Even newbies will get up to speed with this Firefox plug-in in no time. It's a fast and easy way for any user to select a proxy server.
SwitchProxy lets you manage and switch between multiple proxy configurations quickly and easily. You can also use it as an anonymizer to protect your computer from prying eyes. This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
