Are there any built-in proxy settings in Google Chrome? I mean that when I want to set the proxy in it. It just brings up the systems proxy settings...


This will work only on a windows machine

Right Click on the Chrome shortcut
Go to Properties >> Shortcut Tab
Add --proxy-server=proxy server:port to the end of content in Target Section

The reason it brings up the 'system' settings is that it uses those settings by default. Set those, and they're set for Chrome.


You can use Google Chrome Command Line Switches by adding --proxy-server=IP:PORT to Chrome shortcut or in run command or you can also Using Extension like SwitchySharp.
