Re: [Usability] Galeon (in Ximian2 )and probably all GTK2 versions

I've gotten by a little better with out it, but I do have a similar
complaint.  My home ISP requires me to use a proxy, however at work I
don't have to(and if I did it woudl be different).  So it has caused me
some pains on my laptop.  Probably should be some consideration on a
quick on/off feature or allow mulitiple proxies and then just a quick
choice dialog for mobile users.

Koen-- I think the new galeon (1.3.5) and epiphany both now have a prefs
dialog that spawns the default gnome dialog (as I feel is the correct
action just needs more polishing in that area).
