PAC file extension - Proxy automatic configuration file

What is pac file? How to open pac files?

The PAC file extension is associated with the Proxy automatic configuration file.

A proxy auto-config (PAC) file defines how web browsers and other user agents can automatically choose the appropriate proxy server (access method) for fetching a given URL.

A PAC file contains a JavaScript function FindProxyForURL(url, host). This function returns a string with one or more access method specifications. These specifications cause the user agent to use a particular proxy server or to connect directly.

Mime: application/x-ns-proxy-autoconfig
