User Interface of Socks Proxy Checker
The main windows contain the socks proxy list and the details (speed, version, gateway, smtp, location and Google feature) of them. If you double click a socks proxy to set it as active proxy for your browser, it will be shown in the lower-left table.
In this dialog you can choose the countries you are interested. Socks Proxy Checker will only show the socks proxies in those countries that you are checked.
Socks Proxy Checker tests the proxies faster if the Threads is bigger but it will make your surfing slow if the number is too big. We recommend using the default value (5 for XP, 20 for Win7).
In the Test items box, you can choose whether to test the speed, version, gateway, smtp, location and Google feature of the socks proxies.
In the dialog you can easily select what type of proxies you want to export. It's also very convenient if you want to post your proxies in forums.
