> We have tried to provide API in webkit for different network features (custom uri schemes, authentication, etc.) instead of exposing the SoupSession. Would it be possible to add API (if actually required) to set proxy settings?

You mean an API for web-extension (Web Process) or a webview/context API (UI Process)?

If for the extension we could easily add a webkit_set_proxy_resolver(GProxyResolver*) instead of exposing the SoupSession. If you mean an API for webview/context we would have to pass the info all the way to the Web Process, and I am not sure how flexible this would be.

I believe exposing the SoupSession has other advantages where the user can tweak the session to their needs more easily.

I wasn't aware of this switch to network process though.
