intercept indicator directly on the Proxy tab

Gabriel | Last updated: Apr 15, 2022 09:33PM UTC

As far as I can tell the only visual indicator for whether intercepting is currently enabled is on the Intercept subtab itself under the primary Proxy tab. It would be incredibly cool to include a small indicator on the Proxy tab itself so we could know at a glance what mode we're in. I was thinking the same shade of blue (on my default color scheme) that the "Intercept is on" button shows as.

Hi Gabriel. Thanks for this request. We'll discuss this with our product team and get back to you.

I second this suggestion, but I would like it to go further: please make it an active control that can toggle the state with a single click. I'm often flipping back and forth between main tabs, and it takes up to 4 clicks to change the state and go back. This could be implemented as either a small button/switch inside the Proxy main tab header area, a larger button pinned to the right side of the UI on that row, or an indicator (as already described) plus either a new checked menu item or right-click context menu. Lots of options. I realize/agree the Intercept button logically belongs where it currently is, but I think it would be worth duplicating it somewhere prominent/accessible to drastically speed up peoples' workflows.
