i used this way, but failed. even the Opera or Firefox (with torbutton) works well under TOR.

You have to configure it as a HTTP proxy, not as a SOCKS or other form of proxy.

BEST answer is from apohran.  The link provides options and *explains* why each option is better/worse than the other.  The "Best" answer actually has some security flaws associated with it.

1. Download Vidalia from => http://www.torproject.org/easy-download.html.en
2. Install Vidalia - a TOR client with GUI.
3. Wait until Vidalia tells you that Tor is working.
4. Start Google Chrome.
5. Using the Tools menus (it looks like a wrench), choose options, "Under the hood". Scroll down to "Network" and click the "Change Proxy Setting" button.
6. Under the "Connections" tab, choose "LAN Setting" - Select Use Proxy server and enter "localhost" and port "8118".
7. Save your work and return to the Chrome web browser. Check that you are using TOR by going to http://check.torproject.org/
A Green message will indicate that TOR is operating correctly. A Red message will indicate that TOR is not set up correctly.
8. Continue to surf using TOR :-)

For those still having problems. All of the above solutions minus Masteroffearth's(I haven't checked his) work, but what you have to do is make sure you downloaded the "VIDALIA BUNDLE" which is available here> https://www.torproject.org/download/download.html.en
once you install it, the above solutions should all work. The problem is if you download the browser bundle, which operates inside of firefox, not from the actual pc. The vidalia bundle gives you the software to do that, which then allows the extension of choice to work through chrome

also, as recommended, go to check.torproject.org this page from torproject lets you make sure you're securely browsing

In Windows platform, this way is working, but in MacOS, it isn't. Why? But in older Chrome it was working.

Many of the answers work for others, however, I had trouble with mine.  Here are the steps I took:

1) DL Chrome (duh)
2) DL Vidalia/TOR Bundle
3) DL Proxy Switcher extension
4) Load TOR (ignore the FireFox/TOR Browser)
5) Within Proxy Switcher
   a. [Proxy Profiles Tab]
      - Profile Name: TOR
      - Manual Configuration: HTTP Proxy: 127.0.0.1 Port: 8118 (note: put this in manually for the HTTPS and FTP Proxies instead of checking the "use the same proxy server for all protocols")
      - SOCKS Host: 127.0.0.1 Port: 9050
   b. [General Tab]
      - Select "Quick Switch"
      - Select "Binary Switch"
                 Profile 1: [Direct Connection]
                 Profile 2: TOR


The most important part, and the one that I just had to fiddle around with, was typing in the Proxy locations myself.  Hope this helps, if all else fails just play around with it, maybe you'll fix it on accident :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Omg, I just had the HTTP settings set before & now I'm all good. Love you (thank you).
