FoxyProxy 2.0 – Take Back Your Privacy

Posted in Fun Stuff, Linux, Mac OS, Web Apps, Windows


Network blocked by your administrator? Or the school refused to allow students gaining access to sites, such as MySpace? Is your instant messenger working? Well, all because these sites are blocked.

To get access back to these sites, one may have to use an alternative path, such as FoxyProxy. With this proxy application, users are able to gain access to a premier proxing service, and do away with those slow and unreliable proxy tor.

FoxyProxy is an advanced proxy management tool that completely replaces Firefox’s proxy configuration. It offers more features than SwitchProxy, ProxyButton, QuickProxy, xyzproxy, ProxyTex… It is an add-on for Mozilla Firefox browser 1.5 – 1.5.0.*.


  • * Define multiple proxies
  • * Define which proxy to use (or none!) for arbitrary URLs using wildcards, regular expression and other conveniences
  • * No more wondering whether a URL loaded through a proxy or not: FoxyProxy includes optionally logs all URLs, including which proxy was used (if any), which pattern was matched, timestamps, etc.
  • * Out-of-the-box support for Tor with the unique Tor Wizard – zero configuration!
  • * Temporarily or permanently dedicate all URLs to go through a particular proxy
  • * Temporarily or permanently disable use of a proxy
  • * Automatically add blocked sites to a proxy and have them reload through the proxy
  • * Optional status bar information about which proxy is currently in use
  • * Complete Proxy Auto-Config (PAC) support
  • * Download a link using one of your defined proxies with a simple right-click (coming soon)
  • * Unobtrusive presence, stable execution, premier support
  • * Optionally force Firefox to perform DNS lookups through a SOCKS4a/5 server. Note that Firefox without FoxyProxy always performs DNS lookups through a SOCKS5 server if you’ve defined one. Only with FoxyProxy can you instruct Firefox to not use defined SOCKS5 servers for DNS lookups.
