    How To Use Chrome WITHOUT VPN


    Hi,
    Basically, i have a VPN installed (Hotspot Shield) am using it for hiding my ip when i use some programs like skype or Teamspeak, but (obviously) it makes my browsing experience slow especially streaming videos, this forces me to close the VPN everytime i want to use chrome and other programs at the same time.
    So am looking for a way to make my chrome browser bypass the VPN and use my local ip and DNS while its working for other programs, anyone knows how? Btw i have windows 10 xD.
    Thanks.
    Alex.

    It's not possible, because openvpn works on a lower level than a browser proxy.
    You can route specific IP blocks (such as those owned by steam) over the VPN though.
