Why was QuickProxy created?
The addon was created initially for a few friends, who had to switch between a proxy at work, and no proxy at home (and sometimes the work proxy at home to work remotely). Having to switch the settings that often, going through the menu's would have been fairly tenuous, so the idea of QuickProxy was born. After writing it and sharing it with them, knowing that this situation would probably be fairly common, I released it here.
What's next for QuickProxy
Current in-progress features:
- PAC reloading
- Command line support
- Multi-OS full support (System preferences proxy setting, EG Mac-OSX)
After this, I want to look into a toolbar shortcut for users that hide the status bar, keyboard shortcuts for toggling the proxy, and extending compatibility to other products under the Mozilla suite.
Sadly my current workload is fairly heavy, so I haven't had much time (beyond updating the extension to 3.5.* compatibility) to work on the extension. Fingers crossed this will change soon so I can implement the few features I want, while keeping the overall use of QuickProxy as simple as possible.
