Is it possible to configure the proxy for chrome separately, i.e. without using the global windows proxy configuration?

I remember there were some discussions about adding a commandline switch for it to allow extensions to handle setting the proxy, but a quick look at the chrome extension list just gave me tons of "use proxy xyz for site xxx" addons but nothing simple to just give me an UI to configure the proxy only for Chrome.

You can use proxy profiles with Proxy Switchysharp, or define it command line using --proxy-server parameter.

Example: chrome.exe --proxy-server=myproxy:8080 – Helge Klein Dec 9 '13 at 11:48
