Add manual http proxy support (i.e. without the need for using the system wide macOS proxy setting)
First, thank you for this amazing and exciting initiative of creating a new web browser. The industry really need more competitive in this space and I am really enjoying my first day of using Orion 🙂
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I looked around in the Orion settings and could not find any way to manually configure a http proxy. I assume Orion is only using the native macOS proxy setting?
As a user of the Orion browser I would like to be able to manually configure a http proxy in the browser instead of depending on the system wide macOS proxy setting.
As a user I sometimes need to turn different proxy on and off depending on which resources I am are trying to reach. By forcing the use of a proxy in the macos settings instead of in the browser makes this less user friendly and cumbersome.
In the firefox browser, where this is supported, I am making heavy use of the FoxyProxy plugin which makes this really easy.
Are there any plans to add support for manually setting a http proxy in Orion?
Expectations of this setting would be the possibility to set
- http proxy
- https proxy
- socks host (v4, v5)
- An exempt list that do not use the proxy fillable with hostnames and IP's.
