I am looking for a freeware local proxy to perform proxy-chaining with HTTPAUTH.
To explain my situation:
In my workplace I am forced to keep switching between several internet-connected apps, and thus everytime I have to type in the credentials (or, at least, click on 'OK' to send my previously-saved credential). To make matters more annoying, the proxy login times out every 30 minutes, requiring me to lather-rinse-repeat the whole annoyance.
I'd like to just point them all to a locally installed proxy which will on its own perform the required HTTPAUTH against the corporate proxy.
ETA: I found Polipo, but it's kinda wonky on Windows. Especially if I visit a new URL, and the DNS server is a bit slow, then Polipo will simply drop/refuse the connection. And I have to put my password in plaintext. If there's a better suggestion, I'm all ears.
