Simply open toolbar popup and click on a desired category. There are five categories available to choose from. Moreover, badge icon color changes according to the chosen category. Once the proxy is set, a notification popup shows you the current state.

This addon supports PAC proxy as well. Moreover you can white-list any domain or website through toolbar popup UI. In order to white-list a domain, please add the desired domain to the bypass area in toolbar popup. For example, to white-list - www.foobar.com - please add - *foobar.com - to the filed. Please note that all the entries should be comma separated. Once you filled the bypass area, please mark the related checkbox as well (the checkbox next to the Bypass category).

In order to set PAC proxy, please add a PAC url to the designated area (PATH input area). Please note that a PAC path should have a certain format.
