Use a local proxy.pac file to automagically choose a proxy based on destination.  Example:

function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
        if (shExpMatch(url,"cxf.staging.apache.org"))              {return "people.apache.org:3128";}
	else { return "DIRECT";}

That else could also be an default local proxy like so:
	else { return "someotherproxy.com:3128";}

You define this in the "auto configuration url" setting in most browsers proxy config area.

If you already have to go out via a proxy, google "proxy chaining" to see how to make that
work.  There's different
tricks depending on what type of proxies are in use.
