A problem with the current router based VPN client is that it pipes through all sites through the VPN, and only allows certain sites to be "excluded".
This method slows down most sites and increases latency unnecessarily, except for the excluded ones. It would be great if the router's VPN client also had an "inclusion" mode, to be able to enter only certain sites to go through the VPN (the opposite of the current "exclusion" method), and have a built-in proxy support too.

I prefer running most sites directly via a proxy extension on Chrome (SwitchyOmgea), and include only certain sites to be proxied. By the way, proxies are faster than VPN's an just as secure via HTTPS on most sites, and are less likely to be detected by streaming sites.
