Proxy Switcher & Manager extension – Opera add-ons
Proxy Switcher allows you to modify your proxy settings easily from the toolbar panel. Toolbar icon indicates the current type of proxy your browser currently using. The UI for changing proxies is very intuitive. It is very close to the Firefox proxy manager window. The extension is designed such that no resource is used while the panel is closed. This is probably the lightest proxy switcher add-on in the market.
Proxy Switcher supports proxy changing for following modes:
Using this extension there would be no need to digging through the advanced section of your browser anymore. All the settings are access from the toolbar panel. Besides, the toolbar icon is an indicator of the current proxy type. Hover mouse over the toolbar button to get more info.
Proxy Switcher extension is absolutely free and open source. It just does proxy configuration, and aims to be perfect tool of that.
As of version 0. 1. 2, the badge text displays the number of failed resources. Opening the panel, you can check these resources by pressing “Error Log” button. Using this new tool, you can modify your PAC script to support custom proxy setting for the failed resources.
——————CONFLICTS: Proxy Switcher add-on WILL conflict with other extensions trying to control the proxy settings. Such conflicts are caused by the design of the Chromium engine and thus cannot be avoided. ——————
