Posted On July 7, 2021
Chrome Proxy is a new open source project for Linux and Mac OS X that offers users an open source alternative to Google’s proprietary proxy solutions.
While it’s still an experimental software product, Chrome Proxy can be used for a variety of purposes, from a web browser to an Internet of Things system to an email server.
With a stable release, Chrome proxy supports a variety and features of popular operating systems including Linux, macOS, and Windows.
While many people have already migrated to Chrome proxy for Linux, this tutorial will walk you through the installation of a fresh installation.
Installation guideFor this tutorial, we will be installing a fresh Ubuntu 14.04 installation using the command sudo apt-get install chromium-browser.
If you do not have sudo, use the Ubuntu Software Center to install it.
To install Chrome proxy, use this command to add a repository to your system:sudo add-apt-repository ppa:google/chrome-proxy sudo apt install chrome-proxyFrom here, you can then use the sudo command to install ChromeProxy.
Once installed, you should see the following dialog:To configure ChromeProxy, open the Chrome Proxy Preferences window:On the Settings tab, set the Google Proxy Protocol and Protocol Address to the location of the proxy.
From here you can enable HTTP proxy for ChromeProxy and set the HTTPS proxy to HTTPS:The default HTTP proxy is HTTPS and can be set to TLS1 or TLS2:From here on out, you will need to select the protocol for Chrome Proxy to connect to the internet:If you have more than one browser running, you’ll need to choose the correct protocol to connect with each of them:The next tab is the Proxy Options.
Here you can configure which proxy to use for each website.
From there, you’re done!
To verify that ChromeProxy is working, open your browser and visit https://chrome.google.com:If everything is working as expected, ChromeProxy should now be running:You can check your Chrome proxy status by opening the Chrome web browser and clicking the Status button:You should see your proxy in the list:If not, open Chrome Proxy again, and Chrome should now display your proxy status.
If you do, you might want to set up a web proxy, which will allow you to reach other websites.
To do this, you need to configure Chrome Proxy, and then click the Settings button at the bottom of the page.
From the Settings menu, you just need to specify which browser is running the proxy, and which protocol it is using.
For example, if your browser is Firefox, you would want to use the protocol HTTP and the proxy would be HTTPS:From there you can also set the protocol of the site you want to visit, and the port on which it should be able to access the internet.
From these settings, you are now able to set the proxy’s port.
To set the port, simply right click the port you want the proxy to be able access, and select Set as Default:The proxy’s web interface should now appear:And that’s it!
You should now see your Chrome Proxy in the browser’s status bar, and you can continue to access any websites that use your proxy.
