Ability to set a Proxy in a script

RE: Ability to set a Proxy in a script
For Chrome you can just specify whatever you want on the command-line (in the chrome tab of the advanced settings). You can either use the direct mappings or you can specify the proxy.

If you specify a proxy, you should use a PAC script that doesn't proxy localhost traffic, otherwise the testing itself will fail (and you'll probably need to host the pac file somewhere).

Here's a PAC script that I've used before:

function FindProxyForURL(url, host) {
  var lhost = host.toLowerCase();
  host = lhost;

  if ((host == "localhost") ||
      (shExpMatch(host, "localhost.*")) ||
      (host == "")) {
    return "DIRECT";

  if (url.substring(0,5) == "http:") {
    return "PROXY";

  return "DIRECT";
