Proxies (Definition)

A proxy server mediates on your behalf to span a firewall and gather items that your browser has requested.

This won't generally have any impact on the coding of your JavaScript but in the case of the Netscape Navigator browser, the proxy connection setup can be defined in a proxy.pac file that is coded using JavaScript to describe the proxy preference settings.
