Provides system proxy support for the Mac.

MacProxy provides system-wide network proxy support for the Mac. It forwards network traffic from applications that do not support proxies and avoids complex setup for applications that do. MacProxy allows you to surf the internet from behind a firewall, tether your Mac to a SmartPhone/iPhone, and navigate the internet securely and anonymously.

A variety of SOCKS and HTTP/web proxy protocols are supported and a convenient proxy checker, to determine the type of proxy server, is included. Built-in SSH tunnel support provides quick, secure internet access even when connected to insecure, public WiFi networks.

MacProxy provides a simple and intuitive user interface via a system menubar menulet control and a System Preferences pane. The menulet allows users to quickly enable the proxy and switch between multiple proxy servers.

Key Features :

- redirect your Mac's network traffic to any compatible SOCKS or HTTP proxy server
- works with browsers (Safari, Firefox), email (Mail), chat (iChat, Skype), FTP, telnet, and many more network applications
- enable and switch the active proxy conveniently from a menulet
- track session statistics including the number of active connections and data sent/received

- secure browsing by hiding your IP address
- support for SOCKS proxy protocols including versions 4, 4a, and 5
- support for HTTP/web proxy protocols including transparent, non-transparent, and connect
- SSH tunnel support - connect securely to a remote Mac to prevent snooping over WiFi networks
