Epiphany can be configured to use a SOCKs proxy via the "Network"
section of GNOME settings.

Conkeror can be configured to use a SOCKs proxy.  See

For software that does not support SOCKs proxies, you can use 'privoxy'
as a gateway.  'privoxy' presents itself as an HTTP/HTTPS proxy, and it
can be configured to use a SOCKs proxy.  See

Dillo can be configured to use an HTTP/HTTPS proxy in its

Wget and some other command-line utilities will honor the http_proxy and
https_proxy environment variables.  Alternatively, you can configure
wget to use a proxy via ~/.wgetrc.

I do not know off-hand whether these programs leak information in
practice (e.g. by making untorified DNS requests) when configured in
this way.
