Simple Browser That Allows Proxies for i2p

Hello,

I’d like to find a simple browser that allows a manual proxy to be set for use with i2p. Chrome & Epiphany are unsuitable for this, as they both rely on system proxy settings.

Thanks

I’m not sure where you got your information, but the version of Chrome I’m using (Version 49.0.2623.87 (64-bit)) has the option to use a manually chosen proxy.

You have the same version that I do. I get the following message on the settings page:

Network

     Google Chrome is using your computer's system proxy settings to connect to the network.


I would show you a picture; but I cannot add attachments.

Anyway, this is not what I want. I want to be able to set a manual proxy for the browser without changing the system proxy settings.

Thanks, Grace

That might be the case with an unconfigured proxy setting in the browser (That configuration does use however the system proxy settings are configured).

All modern web browsers support configuring their own proxy settings, sometimes enhanced by a plugin (like Firefox).
The web browser proxy settings <will> over-ride however the overall system is configured.

Unfortunately, I can’t get to these in Chrome. Whenever I select Change proxy settings, I get taken to the system proxy settings. Do I need to add an extension to correct this?

In the Chrome Browser,
Settings > Click on the Advanced Settings link at the bottom > Advanced Settings

You should see the following screenshot which when clicked should display your browser proxy settings

This is exactly what I’m talking about. This setting changes the “system” proxy settings, which Chrome relys on. Opera is the same way. I wnat to change to proxy settings for the browser only. This is not possible in Chrome or Opera, which is why I am exploring other solutions.

Thanks, Grace

Did you even click on that button? Once you do, you’ll find the configuration options to manually set the proxy settings.

That shouldn’t be true.
So, for example you should be able to configure the chrome setting I described and then run something like zypper which will not use the new settings set in chrome. Another example is that after modifying the proxy setting in chrome, you can open another browser like firefox and unless FF is itself also configured the same way will not automatically use the chrome proxy settings. The chrome proxy setting should apply only to chrome and all other chrome related apps. You can also test this using a console command like wget, which will not automatically configure a browser proxy and by default would demonstrate your system level proxy settings.

Be aware also that it’s possible to pass automatic proxy settings over the network. If your browsers are set to download and configure automatically, it may <appear> that the proxy settings are at the system level, but they’re not… Each browser is being configured individually at the application level.
