Proxy SwitchyOmega, or SwitchyOmega for short, is a proxy manager that lets users handle and switch between multiple proxies. It quickens the process and helps make it easier to handle. Though it can work on other browsers, SwitchyOmega is specifically designed and optimized for Google Chrome.
Proxy SwitchyOmega doesn’t actually provide you with proxies because it’s only an extension that helps you manage all of your proxies. You still need a proxy provider to supply you with all your needed proxies.
If you’re undecided on what type of proxy you want to utilize then maybe we can help simplify the choice for you. If you want full anonymity and privacy, and also the ability to do advanced tasks like bot automation without getting banned, then residential proxies are the best proxies for you. If you want a faster and more reliable internet connection, then datacenter proxies would be your choice.
