Safari Windows uses parts of IE

I just found something odd…if you have Safari Windows installed, apparently it uses IE’s proxy settings instead of it’s own. If you click Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Change Settings, Safari pops open the IE Internet Options dialog box. Firefox has it’s own proxy settings built-in, but apparently Apple decided to use the Windows proxy settings. I guess that’s not a bad idea, but it surprises me.On a whim, I checked how Google’s chrome handles proxy settings, and it does the same thing as Safari, it uses the IE settings.
