How to Change Web Browser Proxy Settings

Every web browser provides some method to configure the proxy settings. For general instructions, check out How to Change Proxy Settings. Below are some additional links to video tutorials and help articles for changing the proxy settings in major web browsers.

The ProxyMesh service is great for working with all the major browsers. It handles proxy rotation and rotating IP addresses for you. Before you follow the instructions below, be sure to add your IP to ProxyMesh first, otherwise the proxy servers will reject your requests. Also make sure you know which proxy you want to connect to, and have the address and port available to enter into the configuration settings.

You can use any proxy, URL or hostname you already have access to for Selenium.
