    Don't know if it'll do it but Skyfire is another one you could try (I use that as my main browser on Android, I believe it's still free...)

    Skyfire seems to follow the default browser/wi-fi setting e.g. uses the proxy but ignores the LAN IP exception instruction!!!

    Nope
    Dolphin acts like default and SkyFire

    At this rate - I'll be writing my own!

    To be honest, if it's the same in all the browsers, it's probably down to Android. We all now how great Android is at handling proxys.

    Well - a bit of progress!

    Opera has its own proxy settings and you can configure it to ignore proxy for specific IPs
    Android Proxy

    But....

    ... it doesn't seem to play back Flash videos (epresso ones anyway)

    It runs the rest of the site ok - but no videos

    The "flash" videos it doesn;t play are actually mpeg-1

    But anyway, I'd forgotton that, in my schools, the server that Espresso is loaded on is also a proxy server so setting its address as the proxy server (rather than the main county server) in the wi-fi settings means the default browser can be used for both Espresso and Internet
