Surge is a web development and proxy utility. It is designed for developers and therefore requires professional knowledge to use.

These four capabilities form the core workflow of Surge:
· Takeover: You can take over the network connection sent by the device. Surge supports both proxy service and virtual NIC takeover.
· Processing: You can modify the network requests and responses that have been taken over. This includes URL redirection, local file mapping, custom modification using JavaScript, and many other methods.
· Forwarding: You can forward the taken over network requests to other proxy servers. This can be global forwarding or with a flexible rule system to determine an outbound policy.
· Intercept: You can intercept and save specific data of network requests and responses, and you can also decrypt HTTPS traffic with MITM.

Highlighted Features
· Takeover all HTTP/HTTPS/TCP traffic from any applications on your device, and redirect to an HTTP/HTTPS/SOCKS5/SOCKS5-TLS/SSH proxy server following highly configurable rules.
· Used as a WireGuard Client to convert the L3 VPN as a proxy.
· Record and display HTTP requests and responses sent from your iOS devices, including body and header.
· Configure rules using domain match, domain suffix, domain keyword, CIDR IP range, and GeoIP lookup.
· Measure traffic usage and network speed on WiFi, cellular, and proxy connections.
· High performance and suitable for intensive use.
· Block ads by domain rules.
· Local DNS Map (equivalent to /etc/hosts). You can use this function to switch the production/development environment for your app without changing any code.
· All features work on the cellular network.
· Decrypt HTTPS traffic with Man-in-the-Middle.
· Perform URL rewrite.
· Fully IPv6 supports.
· Header rewrite.
· Raw L3 packets capture.
· Safari extension to add rules.
· JSON, text, image and video viewer for the captured body.
· Album mode for the request list.
· Pre-filter for capturing.
· HTTPS proxy protocol supports client-side SSL/TLS certificate validation.
· Scripting: Use JavaScript to extend the ability of Surge as your wish.
· Sync profiles cross devices with iCloud Drive or Dropbox.
· DNS-over-HTTPS, DNS-over-HTTP3, DNS-over-QUIC, TLS 1.3 and more advanced features.

What’s New

Version 5.10.0

New Features
- New subscription feature: Body Rewrite. Surge now can rewrite the body of HTTP request or response, replacing the original content with regular expressions. If you need to make more flexible modifications, try scripting.

- Comprehensive enhancement of the Mock (Map Local) function, adding data types such as text, tiny-gif, base64 to facilitate inline data return. Also added the ability to customize status codes.
- Optimized the request list filter, now displaying the filter at the top and allowing quick toggling of filter activation. Long-pressing a filter item displays a menu for deletion or reversing the item to a negative filter.
- Added recognition for STUN packets, which can be matched with PROTOCOL,STUN.
- Optimized the external resource management page.
- Optimized the script editor page.
- Optimized the module management page.
- Added a long-press shortcut menu to the Utilities tab.
- Added a new URL scheme for the iOS version: surge:///install-module?url=…

- When configuring Shortcuts to execute Surge scripts, the script list of the current configuration can now be directly accessed.
- Enhanced compatibility when decompressing HTTP Body.
- Optimized the script engine, limiting the number of concurrent JSC engine processes to 2 to avoid memory issues.
- The GeoIP database can now be updated by the main application without needing a restart to take effect.
- Optimized the request log, now displaying the specific rules matched for URL Rewrite and Header Rewrite.
- Adjusted the logic of the DNS engine handling empty results, now not waiting for all servers to respond with empty results when multiple DNS servers are configured, to avoid additional waiting when AAAA records do not exist..
- The module page allows undoing modifications to avoid misoperations that change the order of effectiveness.

- Fixed the issue where warnings generated by module configurations were not displayed.
- Fixed a crash in Surge caused by passing some incorrect types of parameters in scripts.
- Fixed compatibility issues with non-https WebSockets in proxy mode with the new version of Safari.
- Fixed the issue where deleting an entry in the rule search page would delete all duplicate entries.
- Fixed some missing highlights in the editor.
- Other bug fixes.

10 STARS! This app LITERALLY saved my privacy from being compromised!!

RUN DONT WALK & DOWNLOAD I purchased the $50 packet WORTH EVERY FREAKING PENNY. I highly suggest if you download you purchase the upgraded version! They respect apple and their terms of use. & PROVIDE YOU WITH A LEGITIMATE LICENSE That apple respects!! So no legal issues in studying and blocking the third parties requests & their connections to gather your data or should i say compromise 😅, you can BLOCK EACH ONE COMPLETELY! I am honestly amazed beyond words and I sincerely want to thank every developer & brainstormers that contributed in the creation of this miraculous app. Literal Geniuses!!!. you guys are phenomenal, thank you so much!:)

Great App!

Truly amazing and powerful for anyone with the understanding required to use it. It’s feature set is unparalleled as far as I’m aware of.

My only gripe is that there need to be useful examples in the documentation! There are none. Show me the awesome things I can do with Surge because it’s a steep learning curve and examples would get me there quicker!

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your love and we will improve on it.
