Response to Re: Corp. Firewall Proxy?
My current employer uses a PAC file to select from various web caches, or go direct. This is how I do it:
I download the companies PAC (cache.pac). I edit it and change the line:
function FindProxyForURL(url, host)
function otherFindProxyForURL(url, host)
Now, I edit no-ads.pac. At the end of the, I include the contents of cache.pac (with the above change). Then, for each instance of
I change it to:
return otherFindProxyForURL(url, host);
There is actually a way for Gecko-based browsers (Mozilla, Firefox, etc) to do this internally, but it doesn't work for IE or Opera. I will look into it again sometime.
