Virtual proxy is a freeware Windows tool designed to help you configure multiple proxies on your computer and switch from one to another with a single click.
And to make everything a lot faster, the developer has created a very simple interface with basic options, all of which are grouped in a single tiny window.
Supposed to work with Internet Explorer and Opera browsers, Virtual proxy requires the user to manually configure each proxy and this way create a list of IPs to be then used by the application.
The interface is, as we said, minimal and lets you add a proxy by writing down the IP address and the port. Once you configure a list of proxies, you can pick the one you wish to use from a drop-down menu, with dedicated options to stop using the proxy, auto listen or choose the local port.
In addition, the main window is being used to see traffic statistics, as it displays the total incoming and outgoing traffic figures, thus letting you know if an already configured proxy server works as it should.
Just as expected, Virtual proxy is far from being a resource hog, but we've noticed some compatibility issues on Windows 7. The program fails to load, although it works okay on most other Windows iterations.
All in all, Virtual proxy is an interesting idea that needs a lot of improvements to become a top product. A revised interface, more configuration options and support for many more browsers would turn it into one of the most powerful apps in this particular software category.
