Safari 3.0.4 Now Supports Proxies - Barely

If you've been running Apple's Safari on your Windows box you may have noticed that in the most recent update, 3.0.4 (523.12.9), the "Proxies" setting is no longer grayed out.

Don't get your hopes up yet, boys and girls.

Clicking "change settings" takes you directly to your Internet Explorer "Connections" tab.


What's worse, support for the [fh][t]*tp[s]*_proxy environment variables is completely gone.

C'mon Apple... this isn't rocket science! And since you're re-hacking Mozilla/FireFox anyway, the code is there to do it right. Use it!

The Dinkster does not approve.
