10.4: Turn off PAC to avoid Safari performance problems
Authored by: RichB on Dec 15, '05 08:58:43PM

It's ironic that this great description of a PAC file is geared towards Internet Explorer which on the Mac has never been able to use a PAC file! Netscape and Mozilla products like Firefox always have been able to and with OS 10.3.8 Safari finally was able to as well by adding it to the bottom of the proxy choices. Tiger made it a separate pulldown menu for automatic versus manual entry. If you use a PAC file in Network System Preferences, IE on the Mac will not work!
