Very nice though a little tedious to use ;)

Working on Windows XP behind a proxy ( trying both Mozilla + Internet
Explorer ) and typing

>>> 1+2

results in a HTML request in the output field of the console:

<title> Data Transfer Status Report </title>
<META http-equiv="Refresh" content="1;
<body bgcolor="#ffffff">
<h2> Data Transfer Status Report</h2>
<tr><td align=right>URL:</td><td align=left><b><a

It contains the correct result: it is 3 :)
