Is it possible to make it so when ever I launch Google Chrome it launches with a proxy? If so, how?

I'm basically trying to make my browsing as anonymous as possible. However, I don't want to have to go to a web service every time I log on.

Go to:

settings => options => under the Hood => change proxy setting => LAN setting => Proxy server

Now configure your own!

Any good tutorials on how to configure one? – Anteater7171 Oct 6 '10 at 6:07
Do you know your proxy server name or IP and port? Are you novice to proxy server? – Vikas Oct 6 '10 at 6:30
Nevermind figured it out. – Anteater7171 Oct 6 '10 at 6:55

Chrome has a command-line switch to set the proxy.

See this extract from the sources.

The switch is: --proxy-server
