Man chrome:
              Specify the HTTP/SOCKS4/SOCKS5 proxy server to use for requests.
              This overrides any environment variables or settings picked  via
              the  options  dialog.

              Specify  proxy autoconfiguration URL.  Overrides any environment
              variables or settings picked via the options dialog.

These do not work here:
	chrome --proxy-pac-url="http://gate:80"
	chrome --proxy-pac-url=http://gate:80
Not suprising, I suppose the URL should not contain '"' and perhaps
the URL should be some some auto config server hook I am not supplying.

Tom, This works here:
	chrome --proxy-server=gate:80

My env:
	chromium-6.0.472.63 from 
	printenv | grep -i proxy
My proxy env vars are not being imported properly,
& setting on command line is ugly, but no time for more now,
possibly a bug/feature in chrome ? I never tried chrome before.
