I am working with a client who uses proxies on their Windows machines. They recently have come to me to solve the issue of why Interenet Explorer and Chrome refuse to use SOCKS5 proxies on port 27977. I believe it has something to do with the fact that all the proxies on 27977 are implemented in pure SOCKS5. I can get Firefox to work just fine with these proxies in Windows, as well as Chrome under Ubuntu. Sidenote: my Nexus One will work with them too on Firefox for Android. I am wondering if their is a patch, or if IE9 would have better support etc. Thanks for any help guys.
