How To Use Proxies With FoxyProxy

FoxyProxy is a browser extension tool that allows users to manage all of their proxies. It makes the whole process of switching between proxies much easier and saves users a lot of time and effort. FoxyProxy has a lot of features that make it better than other proxy switchers like setting predefined rules for when a proxy should work or not.

As FoxyProxy is only a proxy manager, you still need a proxy provider that will provide you with all the proxies you need. It’s not recommended to simply use any proxy though, as you still need a reliable proxy provider to deliver your required proxies. Free proxies are especially not recommended as they are unreliable, slow, and most likely already banned by major websites.

The best FoxyProxy proxies would either be residential proxies or datacenter proxies and it just depends on what you want to do or what you prefer. If you want total anonymity and the ability to do advanced tasks like web scraping without getting banned, then residential proxies are your choice. If you want a speed and a faster internet connection while being more budget friendly, then datacenter proxies are what’s best for you.
