How to Set a Proxy Server in Google Chrome

Google Chrome doesn't offer any special configuration options for setting a proxy server because it uses the proxy settings found in Internet Explorer. However, you can start the configuration process from Google Chrome and it opens the Internet options window from Internet Explorer. Here's how it works:



Step 1: Setup Proxy Server in Google Chrome

Click the "Customize and control Google Chrome" button on the top-right. Then, click Settings.
