Open-source Socks5 proxy with advanced settings for bypassing Internet censorship, which enables you to create a list of multiple servers.
Designed for experienced users when it comes to proxy servers, ShadowsocksR is a Windows tool that gives you the possibility to bypass Internet protocols in order to secure your connection, protect your identity from hackers and your privacy from marketers, as well as unlock geo-blocked content.
Using Socks5, the program can be populated with a list of multiple proxy servers to switch. It gets integrated into the systray on launch, where you can easily toggle the proxy mode. The list of servers can be created from the servers menu.
If your web browsers are equipped with proxy extensions, it's recommended to disable them to prevent software conflicts. Unless you with to enable the system proxy, it's possible to set the browser proxy manually to 127.0.0.1:1080 (Socks5 or HTTT). The default port can be changed from the global settings panel.
The PAC file can be updated using information from other lists available in the downloaded package, or edited with manual settings. What's more, you can view server statistics, tinker with server subscription settings, scan QR codes shown on the monitor, as well as double-click the tray icon to bring up the main app window.
The main window gives you the possibility to add new proxy servers and remove existing ones or edit server settings when it comes to the server IP and port, password, encryption method, protocol and protocol parameters, obsfucator and obsfucator parameters, remarks, and group. ShadowsocksR supports many encryption methods, such as AES 256, RC4-MD5-6, Salsa20, and Chacha20.
The utility is wrapped in a portable package and has two distinct executable files for compatibility with .NET Framework 2.0 (in Windows 7) and .NET Framework 4.0 (in Windows 8 and newer). Therefore, it can be saved to a USB flash drive and effortlessly moved between all your machines to enable proxy.
It had minimal impact on system resources usage in our tests and quickly applied the proxy configuration. On the bright side, ShadowsocksR comes bundled with more than enough options for advanced users, especially developers. On the downside, it's not oriented toward casual users at all.

Add all of your favorite torrent indexing sites in one place without having to visit each site individually each time you want to search for a show or a movie with the help of this indexer that works with Sonarr and Radarr.
While torrents aren't all the hype right now, there are still users out there who rely on them to find the latest episodes of their favorite shows.
Usually, finding new releases can be straightforward, but it can also be quite the pain as you have to manually search entire sites or even swap between several torrent sites. Here's where Jackett comes into play.
Jackett is a sort of torrent indexer service that is primarily designed to work with Sonarr and Radarr (but it also works well with SickRage, CouchPotato, Mylar, Lidarr, DuckieTV, qBittorrent and Nefarious, just to name a few).
In short, it allows you to add all your favorite torrent indexing sites in one place, therefore removing the need to visit each site individually altogether.
To quote the official repository of the project: "Jackett works as a proxy server: it translates queries from apps [...] into tracker-site-specific HTTP queries, parses the HTML response, then sends results back to the requesting software."
So, with the help of Jackett, you can simply add the API information from each tracker and you can simplify the whole process. Each API you add to Jackett will automatically search for the show or movie you desire. No more manually searching and checking each tracking site.
Before anything else, it's worth noting that Jackett works on Windows, macOS, and even Linux. If you're wondering about the full list of supported Public Trackers, Semi-Private Trackers, and Private Trackers, they are all available on the project's GitHub repository.
The installation process is pretty straightforward: simply download the latest version of the installer, (if you get prompted if you would like this app to make changes to your computer click "Yes"), and make sure you check the "Install as Windows Serve" checkbox.
After the installation, launch the app and either make use of Jackett's tray menu to launch the web app or simply enter the following address in your web browser's address bar: "http://127.0.0.1:9117"
From this point onwards, you're ready to add trackers suing the provided web GUI. The configuration process is not yet done, though, as you'll have to still find the API keys from the aforementioned services, but thankfully, there are many tutorials on the Internet to help you out.
Even though getting used to Jackett might seem a bit counterproductive (especially for beginners), it is without a doubt a very useful tool that does its job right.
It's just a matter of you being willing to take a few minutes to install and read a few tutorials online to make it work. If you opt to do so, you'll be rewarded with a lot of saved time when you want to catch the latest episodes of your favorite TV shows.

Connect to the Internet using a proxy server so as to make sure your privacy is protected while you browse the web or make online payments.
There are numerous websites and online services that are accessible only from specific countries so users located in other parts of the world are blocked from gaining access to them. One of the ways to bypass this restriction is to connect to the Internet using a proxy server, so that computer’s IP changes and the target website considers it to come from a whitelisted area. This can be achieved using a dedicated software solution, such as ChrisPC Anonymous Proxy Pro.
The application comes with an intuitive graphic interface so that even novices can easily choose the proxy server they want to connect to, so as to gain access to the websites they are interested in.

Additionally, you can set ChrisPC Anonymous Proxy Pro to run at Windows startup so you will not need to manually set up a new connection every time you login to your PC.

Easily bypass firewalls and location restrictions with this application, which routes your Internet connection through a proxy server of your choice.
Proxies still play an important role in Internet filtering and connectivity, especially for users who struggle to bypass restrictions and firewall rules that block certain websites and services.
Proxifier is an application that aims to help you take another step towards total freedom on the Internet, as it is designed to grant you access to any online resource through your very own proxy, no matter the software solution you use.
As you may already know, some of the Windows apps we're using do not come with built-in proxy support, so it's almost impossible to start them if there's a firewall restriction in place. But not if you use Proxifier. This application has been designed to enable any program to access the Internet through a proxy, no matter if it has such an option or not.
The user interface may seem a bit overwhelming at first glance, but there's nothing too complicated. The proxy servers can be configured in a couple of seconds while setting the rules is only a matter of a few clicks through Proxifier's menus.
Perhaps a small inconvenient is that you will need your very own proxy, so the application isn't able to scan the Internet and give you one. During our tests, however, it was very easy to create so-called 'Proxification Rules' that allow selected applications to use specific ports on specific target hosts.
Another plus for Proxifier is that it comes with detailed logs to inform you which programs are using the proxy or not, as well as detailed traffic statistics to check out what's happening at any given moment.
Overall, Proxifier offers a great experience as it supports a very wide range of applications and remains very light on computer resources.

Keep your system's functionality, security, and privacy safe with the help of this nifty, little GUI proxy client built with Clash and Electron.
A proxy server is either an app or a utility that acts as an intermediary for requests from a source that seeks resources from the parties that provide those resources.
In less technical terms, a proxy server acts as a gateway between your computer and the Internet. The traffic flows through the proxy server on its way to the address you requested. The request in question then comes back through the same proxy server (typically), and the proxy server forwards the data received to the end-user which, in this case, is you.
Proxy servers, while not very popular with day-to-day users, can do a great job when it comes to improving one's security and privacy.
If you're looking for a non-pretentious, easy-to-use proxy server for your computer, then you can check out Clashy, a cross-platform proxy client (available for Windows, Linux, and macOS) built with Electron.
It boasts a simple, modern-looking GUI that allows you to get all the information you require in a straightforward fashion. The app's main window houses 4 important sections, namely Status, Proxies, Profiles, and Settings.
The Status section is the place where you can view information regarding the HTTP port, the socks port, and other aspects such as the log level, mode, and LAN.
While not an over-complicated app, Clashy does have a nice Settings section. You are provided with three proxy modes such as Global, Rule, and Direct. You can also change the socks and http ports according to your needs, allow LAN, and enable the app's main proxy functionality (set as system proxy).
If you're looking for a modern, free, and cross-platform proxy client for your Windows or Linux computers, or your Mac, then Clashy is not a bad choice. It's not the lightest app of this sort out there, but it looks good, it gets the job done, and it's remarkably easy to use.
