"use a proxy for everything except http://www.perlmonks.org" - Yes, but you could do this with the normal Proxy/No Proxy for settings, too. But you can do something with proxy autoconf. which can't do with the normal settings: You can have a single proxy configuration file which is the same for all hosts in your network, but can tell them to use different proxies, according to their IP adresses.
