FoxyProxy is a Firefox extension which automatically switches an internet connection across one or more proxy servers based on URL patterns. FoxyProxy is easy to install, fully transparent when required, and free. Any Firefox user who ever uses proxies should install and take the time to master this tool. When Internet communication’s are effected through the proxy server, the IP address of the Proxy server is logged and the actual IP address of the foxyproxy user is hidden. FoxyProxy basically controls and manages these proxy servers. It not only hides IP address but also speeds up your Internet browsing speed by providing caching services.
FoxyProxy Standard is a free to use software under the GPL License. It is downloaded as an Add-On for Firefox. The small file size makes downloading on slower connections a breeze, while it’s installation can be performed by even the basic computer user. Foxyproxy Standard is being used by many reputed companies like Puma, BBC, Ericsson and the NBA, and help and support is provided through a support forum, where the users queries are attended promptly and with clarity.
[advt]The performance of FoxyProxy standard was fast and trouble free when used with a proxy server based in Sweden. Setup of the proxy server was easy and so was creation of the patterns. The only problem being that search engines like Google start throwing up pages from the country the proxy server is based in.
