So Firefox can use proxies. Chromium cannot, for now.

When trying to set up proxies in Chromium, it refers to "System proxy settings". This in turn opens Gnome settings. And there is no such thing as proxy settings in Gnome.

According to some resources somewhere on the web, there are also some parameters to bypass all this and set a proxy directly.

These do not work, as in they have no effect whatsoever. To give Chromium the benefit of the doubt, I assumed it is not as easy as it seems, and the descriptions I found may be not literally correct. I tried some variants accordingly. Result: These also do not work.

What is going on here? Have proxies been removed from both Chromium and Gnome, in some recent round of feature removals?

Try Foxyproxy. It's a great extension.
