Operating Systems

Enabling a proxy server on an operating system will make all your connection requests go through proxies. In other words, the settings apply system-wide, unless you use applications that override them.

Web Browsers

There are multiple ways to use proxies on a web browser: via operating system settings, browser settings, or various browser extensions, such as FoxyProxy and SwitchyOmega. If you’re not planning to have proxies on all the time, an extension is probably the best tool for the job.
