           Summary: Must restart WebKit after proxy settings change
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.6
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Platform
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

There is an annoying issue with both Safari and WebKit Nighties of having to restart the browser after your proxy settings have changed. More specifically I always take my MacBook Pro between work and home. At work in order to access any website I must run behind the company proxy in order to do so, but the proxy is not accessible outside of the office. So when I take my computer home and use the network there I no longer need to run behind the proxy, but the browser is still assumes to use the proxy making website inaccessible until I restart Safari/WebKit. This creates a big inconvenience when I have pages open that I wish to get back to later.

Other WebKit based browsers such as Google Chrome do not seem to exhibit this problem. I'm not sure if this issue is at the OS level or the Application level as I've not had this issue with any other applications.
