I would like to not use the default proxy configured on my Windows 7 for a specific domain/URL.

The problem is that my configuration is set on "automatically detect proxy settings", so even if I set URL patterns to exclude, it is not used. Also, I have no control over the proxy I want to bypass.

Is there a Google Chrome plugin to avoid using the proxy for a specific URL? Or something on the system that could do the same thing?

ProxySwitchySharp should work fine for you. (Note that I haven't tried it)

Unfortunately I tried it, but it doesn't provide a way to set the default configuration to "automatically detect proxy settings" (as it is in the system configuration). So some LAN website don't work (I guess my proxy provides a very specific configuration), and I can't configure them all that's too much work – Matthieu Napoli Jun 7 '12 at 12:28
I looking for something that would let the system configuration be used, except for a specific website – Matthieu Napoli Jun 7 '12 at 12:29
@Matthieu do you know the AutoConfig URL being used? If so, you can set up the Auto-detect proxy settings as a default profile – Sathya Jun 7 '12 at 12:35
I just tried it again and it doesn't seem to work at all. The system configuration is never overriden (even if I disable everything). Too bad :( – Matthieu Napoli Jun 7 '12 at 12:56
