I just discovered that with Mullvad you can 'multihop' local proxies. So, for example, I can bind my browser to (ensuring that I can only transfer anything if the VPN is connected) while at the same time binding another app, say sabnzbd, to another different local socks5 address. If I bind app #2 to (again, this has to be a local socks5 address) then my browser will have the IP of whatever server I'm connected to while app #2 will have a Swedish IP ( Both require the VPN to be connected to transmit or receive.

I thought that was cool.
