I’ve been playing with the Google Web Accellerator since last night. Not sure how much it’s actually speeding things up yet (it has to work for a while to know what to cache), but I’ve run into one problem.
On my work system (Shh! Don’t tell IT! Oh, wait, I am IT…), it continually overwrites IE’s “use automatic proxy configuration script” setting to “http://localhost:9100/proxy.pac”, instead of the required setting I have to use to make IE work with the proxy at work. I changed it back several times, but it kept getting reset, and basically making IE unusable.
Firefox works OK, but I can’t find a way to just disable GWA for IE, so I might have to disable it altogether on this system.
Anyone know of a way to let it run for Firefox, but disable it for IE, or otherwise stop it from overwriting the auto proxy setting?
