What is Proxy Switcher?


Proxy Switcher allows you to automatically execute actions, based on the detected network connection. As the name indicates, Proxy Switcher comes with some default actions, for example setting proxy settings for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera.

Now you do not longer need a bunch of clicks to set the proxy for a specific network. Just configure Proxy Switcher to automatically detect a network and execute all actions you like.
