Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using this for a couple of years. At work, I work on three networks, each with a different proxy. Then I connect to the Internet at home so this tool save me a great deal of time.

I did try a few other proxy tools but I find myself back using ProxySwitch. Great job guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works absoulutely perfect. The extensions switches automaticly since 6 weeks between my 4 networks and 4 different proxy/no proxy Accesspoints.

If you figured it once out how the config works, it is easy and simple to build your own configuration which switches !automaticly! your proxy settings.

Absolutely amazing and invaluable!
Keep up your excellent work

Does exactly what I needed. Switching between a proxy & no proxy depending upon the IP address my machine is assigned. Thanks for the tool.

too tedious for average users Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I suggest to add a "simple configuration" mode and make it default. It should be possible to add a new proxy in the same way as in Firefox. The possibility to customize it via the edit dialog should be optional. A user should be able to switch the configuration dialog into "advanced" mode, but it shouldn't be default.

Also there should be some feedback about the current proxy in usage, just like the addon "SwitchProxy Tool" does it. Basically, it would be the best to have SwitchProxy Tool GUI with optional advanced edit mode as in MM3.

So please, Mr. Developer, take a look at the GUI of SwitchProxy Tool. This is how users want it.

And maybe a nice looking icon would be good too. The current one is damn ugly.

Many thanks for your feedback

We are pleased about every note for the improvement of the MM3-ProxySwitch.

Some feedbacks are very different. We explain this by different application contexts.
To take these into account, two different user interface would be necessary according to your suggestion.

You probably have overlooked the symbol change for the two modes (direct Internet connection or proxy configuration) and the tooltip for the used proxy configuration.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Fantastic when you have to move your laptop/PC from one network to another, some with and some without a proxy.

It took a while for me to understand how each directive worked in the script for a particular proxy.

The key is that it tallies with the proxy settings, with the addition of defining key sequences.

Highly recommended.

Just what I was after Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is perfect for what I wanted!! Easy enough to set up after reading the page (although for the complete techno illiterate a visual interface would be good) and works just like it says. Thanks very much.

Wonderful for switching Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I think this is the best proxy switcher out there, and with a couple of additions I would never need another one.
I often like to switch to different proxies on the fly and this program lets me do that with a minimal effort.

Wants-
I would want it to have the ability to read a comma delineated list of my own creation from a file (if it didn't have a name for the server in the list file it could randomly assign one based on country of ip and dns) as well as test to make sure the proxy was working by loading a test page and reporting the speed at which the page loaded(in the selection menu, result of load speed). Basically something to keep me from having to go through the list of proxy servers manually by testing out if they work and allow me to choose the faster ones from the list.

Also an additional button to cycle through the proxy servers instead of just one that sets it back to non proxy.

Many thanks for your feedback

Many thanks for your excellent assessment of the MM3-ProxySwitch.


The entered configuration is saved in the file:
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default\MM3-ProxySwitch.txt

We include this information in the documentation.
Many thanks for your note that this detail is missing till now.



Many thanks also for the suggestion for the further
development/completion of the script.

To such a function, till now, we hadn't thought.
Unfortunately, therefore we cannot meet any statement concerning the realization at present.

Is of interest for us:
Which products have already such a functionality?
Which experiences there exist with that?

The perfect proxy extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If you just want to switch between several proxies/socks and the direct internet connection, this is the perfect firefox extension.

You can easily define a list, and switch between proxies and socks in a click, then coming back direct with another click.. i can't ask anything more :)

I was using quick proxy (just 1 proxy to setup), but if you need to use more than 1 proxy this is the way to go.

I've also tried foxy proxy but it was too complicated to setup and overengineered overall, besides it hadn't a way to easily switch between different proxies, foxy it's just a way to automate the proxy-website combination as far as i understand, a completely useless task for me.

So this plugin is perfect for the task :)

thanks to the author

Per-browser proxy setting made simple Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Although the alternative extension, FoxyProxy, has more features such as per-url proxy server selection, it was too confusing and had too much UI friction. Also I was a previous user of ezproxy but I was looking for something better.

MM3-ProxySwitch is great because of the easy button interface and free-form configuration. You can back up just the proxy configuration with a text editor (Use FEBE for real backups, of course)! Also it can load the Internet Explorer proxy configuration (unfortunately you need to manually create an about:config key! but maybe this is for those Unix users who don't want to see "Import IE").

The bad part is the free-form configuration. It is hard to figure out what the proper syntax is. Basically it seems like you cannot have a space in the name of your proxy setting, and the noProxy is a comma-delimited list of IPs or numbers without the ports. E.g. noProxy=.internal.example.com,internal2.example.com. Finally when the IE setting is imported, is the noProxy the same format? Can MM3-PS accept noProxy=*.internal.example.com for example? I though in firefox there is no * character.

Many thanks for your feedback

Unfortunately, the English description contained a description from the previous version yet.

The lastest version is: 2007.480
Download: http://www.Proxy-Offline-Browser.com/ProxySwitch/


Blanks can be contained in the configuration name.

[a test
http=127.0.0.1:8080

Is a help button missing at your text editor?
You get a HTML page with the description of the keyword with help button.


The Internet Explorer Settings can be imported now with the instruction:

import=IE
See: http://www.Proxy-Offline-Browser.com/ProxySwitch/#ImportIE


You can type all settings of the Firefox in at: No Proxy for.
You see the settings:

Firefox / Tools / Options... / Advanced / Network / Connection / Settings...

The Internet Explorer has more settings. What is possible is converted for the Firefox.

Easy and Cool Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A perfect experience! I downloaded and restarted my brower. Options had documentation on how to drag the tool into my menu bar, then it was easy to configure. I had this from download to working in under 3 mins!!! The only complaint I have is that I click once to turn off and I have to reenable via the pulldown menu. But, this I can live with!

This makes my network hopping so much easlier. Thank you!

Many thanks for your feedback

Actually this should be possible with a new click on our MM3 logo.

See: http://www.Proxy-Offline-Browser.com/ProxySwitch/#Use

With a click on the symbol MM3 you can change between the direct connection to the internet and a proxy configuration.

Doesn't this work?

Very flexible Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I tested all available proxy extensions.
If there is only one proxy that should be switched on and off, use QuickProxy.
If you have more than one, this is the best.

TMI needed Not yet rated

Nice there is a utility like this that someone made available for 3.0 alpha, but lets face it. this whole script thing is for the birds. how about a simple "basic" mode for a simple one line entry of the proxy:port ? if someone needs advanced, then click that tab for the scripting. Just my opinion.
