Chromium SOCKS proxy extension

Chromium extension to configure a localhost SOCKS proxy. Defaults to localhost:8080 but can be configured to use a different port.

How do I install it?

You can install this plugin from the Chrome extension store, or by downloading the source code and installing it manually in a Chromium-like browser.

How do I turn the proxy on / off?

Right click the little icon of a grey sock and check or un-check the "Use localhost SOCKS proxy" option. When the proxy is running a small green "on" badge will be overlaid on to the sock icon.

If the badge flashes red it means the browser isn't able to connect to the proxy server.
