Thank you in advance!

It's probably not what you're looking for in this particular case, but I use a Google Chrome extension called Proxy Switchy! Off course this requires you to have a browser open, but in my case it is 100% of the time.

Since Chrome uses the system proxy settings (on Windows, IE proxy settings) because it doesn't have its own proxy settings yet (see Therefore, changing Chrome's proxy settings using Switchy will also affect the system proxy settings.


- Manage and switch between multiple proxy profiles.
- Change the proxy configuration of Chrome and IE in one click.
- URL based switch rules.
- Supports Socks v4 and v5.
- Change LAN and VPN/Dial-up proxy settings.
- Quickly add rules for currently active websites.
- Quick proxy switch between two profiles or cycle all profiles.
- Online rule list support (AutoProxy compatible).
- Export switch rules as PAC/RuleList file.
- Backup/Restore options.
- Proxy change monitoring.
- Colorful profiles and icons.
- Supports Windows and Linux (32/64 bit) -- OS X support is planned.
- and more are coming!
