Toggle HTTP, FTP and HTTPS proxies via widget Network
I wrote a free widget for switching HTTP, FTP or HTTPS proxies, and it currently works for Ethernet or AirPort networks.

The widget is basically a front end for a bash script, which does the hard work. I also had to write an Objective C tool for parsing of current configuration information. It is all free, so if somebody would like to see the source, just let me know.

Total networking newbie here but how is this better than just creating new Network Locations for each proxy and then switching between them in the Apple menu? Thanks!

OK, This tool takes a different approach. It is changing proxy settings for default Network Locations without any need for creating new ones.

I've been looking for a widget like this since "proxy on/off" stopped working. This widget is very helpfull if you travel a lot and have to switch different proxies on and off.
