Important Thing to Consider while setting up a Proxy

Here are some important things which are to be considered while you set up a proxy in any browser whether it chrome,mozilla or internet explorer.

First you should remember that if you change settings on mozilla firefox manually, automatic or any one like socks, SSL, Gopher, Https then these settings will not effect the other browsers.

Suppose you are browsing from firefox with socks proxy set and you are also browsing on chrome with no proxy then which ever websites you viewing on mozilla are never known to anyone until your proxy server sends information to anybody. While whatever you will browse on chrome that will can be seen and found by the network admins.

Now second case is that if you have changed the proxy settings of chrome then it will also change the settings of internet explorer and you will browse the websites in both browser with the same proxy servers.

Speed Via Proxy Settings and Other Browsers

Another thing is that you are thinking about getting speed if you set up proxy then forget about it because the proxy servers are always located very far away then your place then they will never provide you any speed however you can browse websites normally and can downlaod anything which is blocked on your servers.

If you plan not to use proxy settings then just go to lan settings of internet explorer and click on automatic or just remove the check mark in front of proxy settings.

All the proxy server settings in chrome internet mozilla can be set up manually or you can have some software to do that for you. Software will change the proxy settings automatically for your browsers specially for internet Explorer.

Now if you are using any other browser than this one like Opera mini, Safari or any other then they have all the same procedures just look for network settings , that is the place where you can change the proxy settings.
