    proxy settings. You can also click the Windows Start menu| Control Panel | Internet Options.

    Set a proxy in Google Chrome separately and not using Internet Explorer settings
    Some times, you want to use proxy to connect internet on Google Chrome but directly
    connect on Internet Explorer. In this section, I will tell you how to set a proxy in Google
    Chrome separately and not using Internet Explorer settings:
    Right click on the Chrome icon on your Windows desktop and select Properties | Shortcut.
    In the Target field, add the following for enabling a proxy separately in Google Chrome:
    --proxy-server=host:port - Click OK to apply the settings.

    Similarly, for Google Chrome in Linux right click on the desktop icon, click on Properties,
    then add the line --proxy-server=host:port in the Command field


    How to setup proxy in Internet Explorer
    --------------------------------------
    1 - First of all you will need proxy servers (proxys) for your Internet Browser
    2 - Now you will need to start Internet Explorer. Click on Tools and select Internet Options
    3 - Move to the Connections tab. At the bottom of the window in the Local Area Network
    (LAN) settings section click on the LAN Settings
    4 - First of all check the box labeled Use a proxy server and after click on Advanced
    5 - Type your proxy servers IP address under Proxy address to use and proxy port under Port
    Check the box labeled Use the same proxy server for all protocols Click OK button
    Now you have successfully setup proxy for your Internet Explorer.


    Setting up Opera to use proxy servers
    -------------------------------------
    Proxy servers collect information from the Internet and store it locally until you view it.
    In order to work correctly, and in some cases to allow Internet access at all, proxy
    servers must be properly set up. This applies to all programs that use such servers.

    Proxy server settings are found in Tools > Preferences > Advanced > Network
    (Mac: Opera > Preferences > Advanced > Network). Click the "Proxy servers"
    button to open the proxy settings dialog.
    Tick the checkboxes for the protocols you want to use a proxy for and enter the proxy
    server hostname or IP address in the text field to the right of the protocol name
    (HTTP, HTTPS...). To the right of the protocols there is a box available for the port number.


    how to setup proxy in safari
    ---------------------------
    1 - Open your safari browser and click on gear icon located at right top corner of your
    screen. Click on ?Preferences??
    2 - In ?preference? window click on ?Advanced? menu. In this advanced menu window
    we can find a row labeled as ?Proxies:?, click on ?Change Settings??.
    3 - On clicking ?Change Settings??, another pop window will appear on your screen
    labeled as ?Internet Properties?. In this window click on ?LAN Settings?.
    4 - On clicking ?LAN Settings?, another window will appear on your screen labeled as
    ?Local Area Network (LAN) Settings?, as shown in below image. In this window click on
    the box provided in Proxy Server block as highlighted.

    and Port and click on "OK". These settings will not be applicable for dial up connections.
    These settings will be saved after your confirmation and close all windows including browser.

    Really good write up.
    Kudos on a job very well done.
    Especially the Google Chrome write up which most people screw up.

    Also, if you guys need to practice what proxygo just posted

    You guys can go to
    https://saucelabs.com/

    You can try over 129 different browsers versions, in all 3 major OS( mac,linux, windows and even android).

    I have used pretty much atleast 40 different of their browsers, its a lot easier when you need to get some testing done on a specific browser.

    With stickies we try to keep them on topic.

    I had to delete a couple of posts that mentioned other options and/or tools.
    To discuss other methods, techniques or tools everyone is free
    to start a thread about it. This way we keep things organized.

    yeah indeed, plus there's lots of newbies that don't even know what a proxy is and how to set it up in their browsers!
