How to set up your own proxy server for your Google Chrome browser

It’s a bit of a pain to setup a proxy server on your Chromebook for Google Chrome OS. 

In the past, the Google Chrome operating system would simply automatically open a Google Proxy Server, and you could do all your browsing over that. 

But that has since changed, and Chrome OS is now capable of configuring a few Google proxy servers, allowing you to do some things like watching videos over your own internet connection, or browsing over your Chromecast without needing to buy a new one. 

If you’re a Chrome OS user who’s trying to use the browser as your main operating system, it might be a good idea to get a proxy for Chrome OS running on your laptop. 

Here’s how to set it up, with a couple of tips: If you’re running Chrome OS as a standalone OS, you can install the ChromeProxy extension for Chrome to make it easier to use. 

You can then use that ChromeProxy server in any browser that supports the extension, including Chrome OS itself. 

This will require installing the Chrome Proxy extension as well, and then setting up a proxy in Chrome. 

Open up Chrome and navigate to the Extensions section. 

Tap the Google extension and select the Chrome extension that you just installed. 

Click the Add button to add the Chrome proxy server. 

Set the proxy up on your computer. 

Go to the Google proxy settings page, click the Settings tab, and set the proxy settings as you see fit. 

Your Chrome proxy should now work with any browser on your system, and it’s safe to install it in any Chrome OS version of Chrome OS without any extra configuration. 

Just be aware that your Chrome proxy may be limited to what the browser supports, and may not work on older browsers. 

The Google Chrome extension works in Chrome OS and can be downloaded for free from the Chrome Web Store. 

It’s also worth noting that Chrome OS will allow you to set the Chrome settings to work on your Chromebox if you have an external monitor. 

There’s also an alternative, if you want to run Chrome on your home PC, as a desktop OS.

Here’s a list of desktop OSs that do that.

The official ChromeOS website lets you set up a Chrome Proxy on your desktop PC. 

Install the Chromeproxy extension and you can use that as well.
