I like this discovery process. It's all in HTTP. The only downside is 
that it requires plaintext HTTP to work. I'm assuming that 
http://awebsite.com should not be the real site that the user is trying 
to view, but some specific site that the browser vendor keeps available 
just for testing for proxies with HTTP. You can't use the site that the 
user used, because that might be HTTPS.

You will get pushback on #5, though.

My mother would call me if she got that. My daughter would quickly learn 
that clicking "Yes" after unchecking the "Prompt" box and selecting 
"everywhere" makes the prompt go away and not come back. IOW it would 
make the Internet work.


(or my mother could call my daughter and get her advice...)
