I use the same laptop at home and in the office. In the office, I am required to use a proxy to access the internet. At home, I don’t require a proxy. Going back and forth between the two on both IE and Firefox was driving me sort of crazy. There really is no easy one-click way to turn the proxy settings on or off.
So, I found two tools (yes, one for each browser) that do just that.
Both of these add-ons add a simple button or toggle to the browser. Once you have set up your proxy information, it is then only a single click to turn on or turn off the proxy.
