Tried Proxifier, MacProxy and ProxyCap:
Of those, I liked the interface of MacProxy the most. Clean and simple.

My Score
+ Interface is nice
+ If you use an SSH Proxy, MacProxy will manage the connection for you
+ Switching proxies can be done via Menubar
O Installs as a pref pane (I prefer this for apps like this, YMMV)
- Could not find a way to get SSH Public Key authentication to work.

Compare to competition
- Proxifier offers more flexible rule management (Wildcards even in Application name), but does not manage SSH connections. Got nice traffic display as well
- ProxyCap offers Proxy Chaining and SSH Public Key auth

Finally I'd like to say, that during my tests all of the Applications tested were working without causing any trouble.

This works very well on 10.6.1 for all applications I could find (Including WoW -- which required a realmlist.wtf mod for battle.net login). I had previously tried tsocks and proxifier, but I do not believe that either have snow leopard support.

My current setup is remote login to a unix server, configuring it as a socks proxy w/ tunnel, and telling MacProxy to connect to localhost. (ssh -ND 9999 user@myunixserver, and then using localhost:9999 as proxy).

My only 2 complaints at this time (after using the trial for a few minutes) is that MacProxy leave a process running when it is disabled and without menu icon. Why? Also, I got my first kernel panic in slow leopard after clicking disable MacProxy.

Will consider buying after more testing.

Proxifier does have Snow Leopard support as it is but in the works is an update to make it even more SL compatible so don't throw mud on a product your not sure about.

I am sure though that proxifier is much more useful and powerful than macproxy. Yes, I have tried both... if you need only one proxy, no info then macproxy I guess... but if you want to chain proxies, be able to use http and socks together at the same time or by themselves on a system level like macproxy then I recommend you go with the much more powerful proxifier. I am in no way affiliated with proxifier; I am just a user whom has tried both apps since their inception and have come to the conclusion that proxifier is much more stable and feature-laden. Proxifier hit the ground running much before macproxy and remain ahead imo.

I was not throwing mud. I was simply saying that I didn't believe proxifier had Snow Leopard support at the time I posted that comment. And I was right. I just checked the proxifier page, and there was an update on October 5 which apparently ironed out SL support (which explains why I had trouble with it in the past). This being said, I just tried Proxifier and it works great. My favorite part about proxifier is that it doesn't leave a daemon running as root while it's not in use...
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
