Chromium launch command to use custom socks5 proxy and skip all ssl validation

First, download and install chromium (because running a browser with SSL verification turned off is insecure -- only use this browser for accessing mesos).

Window 1:

ssh -D 9999 <hostname>

Window 2:

open -a /Applications/ \
    --args \
    --proxy-server=socks5:// \
    --host-resolver-rules="MAP * , EXCLUDE" \


This browser should only be used to access resources where disabling SSL verification is desired. This is not a secure way to just browse the net.
