Allow setting WPAD URL on Android

Project Member Reported by, Sep 17 2014

Issue description

Steps to reproduce the problem:
You can view the proxy settings in chrome://net-internals#proxy, but you can't set a .pac file URL.

What is the expected behavior?
Be able to set it, like on desktop chrome.

What went wrong?
The setting is not there.

Did this work before? N/A 

Chrome version: 37.0.2062.117  Channel: stable
OS Version: KTU84P
Flash Version: 

I have tried to find a solution using apps (e.g. Drony) that adds a proxy running on the phone, but unlike Chrome itself they don't seem to support using HTTPS to connect to the remote proxy.

I want wpad.dat to be able to return "HTTPS" and not just "PROXY", which uses plaintext.

Well, it works in latest Drony if it helps someone.

Drony supports HTTPS proxies? It didn't work when I tried it.
I saw your post and make it work ;).

We're still waiting…

(this is a test to see if this takes the bug out of "Archived")

I am unaware of any plans to change this on the Chrome Android side, so will leave this as Archived.

The expectation on Android is that you configure the proxy settings for the system rather than for the browser.

Recent versions of Android will let you specify a PAC script for the network, and Chrome will use that.

Proxy type of "HTTPS" should be supported by this as well.
