A secret tooltip in Options dialog

Now that we have been speaking of tooltips in NetBeans IDE (How do you like balloon-like tooltip?) I remembered a tooltip which I have recently added into NetBeans 6.1 IDE.

There is a new tooltip in Tools|Options dialog in General page over Use System Proxy Settings:


This tooltip shows a Network HTTP Proxy which was detected from user's operating system. It can help users to see what proxy is active right now, or to make them sure the right one proxy was found.

Just a note: If NetBeans launcher cannot found information if a proxy is active in user's system or it doesn't, the Use System Proxy Settings will be disabled.

In the case of launcher found that no proxy is currently active, the tooltip will show a message 'Direct connection'


What do you think of it? Doesn't it make sense?

And in general, what are your experiences with using Network Proxy support in NetBeans IDE? Do you need to do setup Network Proxy manually? Or, you don't care about Network Proxy because it works out-of-box? :-)

Thanks for your opinion.
