This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

I am using Chrome, and an extension called Switchy! can do the job.

It achieve this by setting some script for the global proxy setting of the system.

If you want any program to work through socks proxy, you need software like

  • FreeCap
  • WideCap
  • SocksCap
  • ProxyCap
  • Proxifier
  • or even Fiddler.

    It's possible to forward all traffic or from specified applications, some programs allow building of complex rules.
