Most CLI apps will honor http_proxy/ftp_proxy environment variables for
proxying.  GUI apps may or may not support that, I can't say that I've
tried.  Gnome (and I'm sure KDE) have their own control panel setting
for that, but that only applies to apps that make use of their VFS
library.  If they do their own web access, they may not honor it.
