Create second choice of proxy...

by lalagee65 / January 23, 2006 4:19 PM PST


I'm looking for a function in a browser which i don't know if it exists. I want to connect to some websites trough a proxy. The problem is that i have some proxies which are not always online. This is why i want to have some kind of function which takes the first proxy to connect to the website. If that proxy is not reachable, i need the browser to connect to the second proxy, and if that is not possible to the third on, and so on, until it finds a working connection.

Is this function present in a browser (could be any of them; IE, firefox, opera, netscape etc.)

Another function i am looking for is that you can specify which websites it should visit trough the proxy and which websites not. Currently you can say which one's it should exclude from visiting trough the proxy, but i want it to be possible to say which ones you DO want to visit trough the proxies... But this is of second importance to the first question Happy

Thanks in advance!

To be honest, I would love to help. It's just that i am incapable of doing that at the moment. I'm currently only a webscripter in php.. Sad

But in what language is that extension written? I've thought about starting to learn Java...

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
