Proxy Switcher Lite
Proxy Switcher is a simple-to-use piece of software that allows you to switch through multiple proxies when navigating the Internet, by creating multiple profiles.
Rapid installation and accessibility via system tray
Setting up the program takes minimal time and effort. Once initialized, Proxy Switcher creates an icon in the system tray. Users can create multiple profiles by specifying the proxy server and port number, along with notes (if any).
Create multiple proxy profiles with advanced settings
Advanced settings can be configured when it comes to the secure line, FTP, Gopher, and Socks. Proxies can be edited and removed from the list easily.
In addition, it is possible to create a global exclusion list and ask the app to bypass the proxy server for local addresses, automatically run Proxy Switcher at system startup until further notice, disable balloon hints for the system tray icon, and so on.
Evaluation and conclusion
Proxy Switcher is very light when it comes to CPU and RAM, so it does not affect the overall performance of the PC. We have not come across any problems throughout our evaluation, as the app did not hang, crash or pop up error messages. All in all, this tool comes bundled with an intuitive set of options for managing multiple proxy profiles while navigating the Internet, which can be easily figured out.
