Setting Up Proxies in Ghost Browser

Imagine you’re building a web or employing a web browser for more advanced tasks. In that case, there’s a risk of facing some limitations, such as a single connection at a time due to cookies or the inability to manage several accounts on the same site concurrently. 

Custom browsers like Ghost Browser empower users to leave the above restrictions behind. Of course, adding proxies on top and thus performing scraping tasks with a different IP address enhances the browsing experience even more. Therefore, this guide will show you how to integrate Oxylabs’ Residential and Datacenter Proxies with Ghost Browser.
