Summary

Proxy Switcher is an extension that helps you easily switch proxies from toolbar popup UI.

Simply open toolbar popup and click on the desired category. There are five categories available to choose from. Moreover, badge icon color changes according to the chosen category. Once the proxy is set, a notification popup shows you the current state.

This add-on supports PAC proxy as well. Moreover you can white-list any domain or website through toolbar popup UI. In order to white-list a domain, please add the desired domain to the bypass area in toolbar popup. For example, to white-list - https://www.foobar.com - please add - *foobar.com - to the filed. Please note that all the entries should be comma separated. Once you filled the bypass area, please mark the related checkbox as well (the checkbox next to the Bypass category).

In order to set PAC proxy, please add a PAC URL to the designated area (PATH input area). Please note that a PAC path should have a certain format. For example if your PAC file is located in - C:// - folder (on windows machine), please write - file:///C:/pac.data - in the PATH area. If you do not know how to write a PAC file, please read this (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_auto-config) Wikipedia page. Once you made a correct PAC file, please add it to the PATH field.

To report bugs, please fill the bug report form in the add-on's homepage (https://mybrowseraddon.com/proxy-switcher.html).

The experience is not very good. Only one custom proxy can be used at once, which is not convenient at all.

不理想,只能使用一个自定义代理,非常不便,比Chrome里的SwitchyOmega差太远了
