ZenMate is a proxy switcher add-on for both
High emphasis on privacy and speed
ZenMate encrypts traffic and cloaks your IP by routing it via the country of your choice. This not only protects your surfing but also allows you to access content that wouldn't normally be available in your region. Your data is also compressed, this means that browsing speeds are surprisingly fast for a proxy switcher. Streaming video can be a bit slow but the inconvenience is offset by the fact that you can watch content that is blocked outside of your region.

Very easy to setup and use
As with most Chrome add-ons, installing ZenMate is extremely easy. Once you've installed it, you simply have to enter your e-mail address to activate it. You don't need to sign-up or enter any activation codes, although it is questionable why a service which claims to allow you to surf anonymously requires any e-mail address.
The ZenMate status bar sits in the top-right corner of Chrome and turns green when you are protected. To manage it, just click on the green shield. What's really nice about ZenMate is the ability to switch between countries instantly. By default, your internet traffic is routed through Switzerland but you can change it to a UK, Hong Kong, US or German proxy instantly.
On the downside, there aren't many country proxies supported by ZenMate - although it's likely more will be added as it develops.

really good add-on but they need to get better servers installation and usage is so simple that even people with no knowlege about proxy can enjoy security :) the softonic "con" about email address is not true !!! they require to give them any firstname.lastname@example.org the right format since you don't have to confirm the registration your potential email while registering can be "email@example.com" and thats 100% unused email yet it will start working and will give you password simply put imagine the email box is a nickname box in email address format and password can be changed on next screen instantly you can keep using this "firstname.lastname@example.org" and password as long as you wish no actual email account required
Highly recommended, very quick, so user friendly. A complete must have for all Chrome users!!
