  3. FoxyProxy Extension Features

Some features of the FoxyProxy Extensions include the following. These vary based on browser (Chrome, Firefox) and whether or not you’re using Basic, Standard, or Plus Editions:

  • Animated toolbar icons show you when a proxy is in use
  • Colored icons show you which proxy is in use in real-time
  • Define multiple proxies
  • Define which proxy to use (or none!) for arbitrary URLs using wildcards, regular expressions, whitelists, blacklists, and other conveniences
  • No more wondering whether a URL loaded through a proxy or not: FoxyProxy 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
  • 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.
