Bug Description

Nothing on the dialog to be able to setup a proxy per network.

This is required the more mobile the world gets and it takes a lot of time to get browsers, apt, Skype etc. setup when moving from one network to another.

Changed in network-manager-applet (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

OSX and iOS, for instance, let you set this differently for each network, but there's just the one global setting in Ubuntu. So if you have a laptop that is only intermittently joined to a network requiring a proxy, you have to go to network settings every time you join that network and set the proxy settings again, and unset them again when you leave...

Needs to be a tab in Edit Connection, part of network manager.
