Tidal Pool Software Releases MacProxy 1.0 for Mac OS X

Tidal Pool Software announced the release of MacProxy 1.0 for Mac OS X Leopard on Tuesday. MacProxy provides system-wide network proxy support for the Mac, including applications that don't otherwise include proxy support.

Key features of the utility include:

  • Works with browsers (Safari, Firefox), email (Mail), chat (iChat), FTP, and telnet among others
  • Enable/disable and switch the active proxy conveniently from a menulet
  • Create one or more proxy server entries
  • Track session statistics including the number of active connections, data sent, and data received
  • DNS resolution through the proxy server
  • Secure browsing by hiding your IP address

MacProxy is available for download from Tidal Pool Software. The download includes a free, fully functional 30 day trial. MacProxy can be purchased for US$19.99.
