Proxy/No-Proxy switch

Hello, maybe it would be nice to have a user switch like invidious to turn the proxy on or off, i.e. allowing for a direct connection to instagram photos and videos. Though that would mean less privacy it's still better than using the instagram website or one of those shitty duplicates which makes money by throwing its own ads at you. This would also lessen the burden on the bibliogram servers and lessen the effect like the current blocking which seems to come back now and then.

Requesting images does not trigger any blocking, and I believe the server requirements to proxy them are very low. I think it's fine to always proxy them, and I'm not sure why a user might choose not to.

Feel free to reopen if you have more to add.
