    Hi Everyone!

    I've been looking for this for a while but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Part of the reason is that a lot of VPN services have their own "Proxy" browser which is not what I'm looking for because it only works with their service. But they clutter up the search results.

    What I need is a web browser app with configurable proxy support. So I can go into settings in the app, set a HTTP (or even SOCKS) proxy, and then all traffic from that browser goes through that proxy.

    I know there is a global setting for HTTP proxies in iOS. This is not what I need, I don't want all of my phone's traffic to go through the proxy. I just have some sites behind a proxy which I need to access sometimes. So I want only one app to go through the proxy.

    I found several apps that can do this on Android but none on iOS which is a bit strange. Does Apple disallow it somehow?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    YESSSSS! Thank you so much!! I knew there had to be one. Got it and it works perfectly.

    Stupidly enough I just realised I actually had iCab Mobile purchased already - many years ago back when I still had an iPhone 1. I didn't know it was still around and I didn't realise it had this feature (considering how long it's been around it may not have had this feature back then anyway). Over the years I stopped using it - I think back in the day I used it for a particular feature Safari didn't have and stopped when it was added to Safari.

    I don't think it showed up when I searched for 'browser' and 'proxy' in the app store.. Otherwise I'd have found it myself. Totally forgot about this one altogether.

    Anyway thanks again!
