Hoxx VPN Proxy is a VPN browser extension dedicated to Firefox and Chrome, which gives you the possibility to connect to another country in order to hide your real IP address, replace it with a fake one, protect your online privacy, and access websites that aren't available in your region.
According to the developer, it uses 1024-bit end-to-end encryption in the free edition and 4096-bit in the premium version, in order to ensure secure proxy connections. No special configuration is required, such as server address and port number, thanks to the fact that this addon shows a list of all countries available and forms a connection with any on click.
Over 50 locations are available in the free edition of Hoxx VPN Proxy and more can be unlocked by purchasing a premium license (there are various pricing plans). The servers are split in three lists: free, premium and public.
In addition to the obvious difference between the free and premium servers, it's necessary to mention that the public list is accompanied by a warning saying that, because they are publicly listed on the Internet, they are likely to slow down your network connection.
As soon as a connection is successfully established, Hoxx VPN Proxy notifies you through a message that pops up from the lower-right corner of Firefox. In some cases, the new connections might not form instantly, but this should be expected. With one click on the slider button, you can temporarily disable the addon without having to remove it from the web browser.
We haven't experienced any compatibility issues with the latest Firefox version in our tests. It switched the Internet connection between different countries without delay in our tests. Thanks to its straightforward approach, it can be used by anyone looking for a Firefox proxy addon without any configuration required.
