Flexible proxy settings management and anonymous surfing capabilities at your finger tips provided by this streamlined application
If you’re still looking for ways to stay completely anonymous when browsing the Internet, Proxy Switcher Standard is definitely one of the best ways to do that.
The application relies on a comprehensive proxy list that can be downloaded in just a few minutes, so you will receive thousands of proxy servers from all over the world.
Since it’s sometimes impossible to find one that really works, Proxy Switcher Standard can help you in this respect as well. It provides a testing tool that returns not only the current state and response time, but also the country and the uptime.
The interface is pretty user friendly and straightforward and it takes just a couple of minutes to get used to it. And in case you still find it difficult after a while, there’s always the help manual that comprises tons of information on the app and on the way you should use the proxies.
Should you find a working proxy, just right click on the server and hit the ‘Switch to this server’ option to enable it in all your browsers, including Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
Of course, users also have the power to add their very own proxy servers and lists into the app, but the built-in database should get the job done for you.
Another feature that’s worth mentioning is the automatic task scheduler that enables you to download new proxy servers, scan new ones, rescan dead servers or clean up old, non-working servers at a given time.
The only problem we’ve experienced during our test occurred when downloading proxy lists, as the application froze for a couple of seconds when retrieving new information. But all in all, Proxy Switcher Standard is definitely one of the best solutions of its kind, as you can find out if you give it a try.
