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.

I hope this information may help you.


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.

  • do they work for all traffic, not only browser(s) traffic... what of this programs do you recommend (from your experience) for Windows... and for Linux... – ZEE Mar 19 '18 at 18:12
