This is not the job of Squid to be deciding if your browser should go get
it direct. After all, your browser has already contacted the Squid cache
to ask about the object. Squid naturally serves it up one way or the other.

I believe what you are looking for is the Netscape Automatic Proxy
Configuration feature in their browsers (Microsoft Internet Explorer
supports this now also I believe.) You can see how Netscape describes it

Basically you can set this file up to tell your browser before it even
thinks of talking to a Squid cache to skip it and go directly to web sites
that are local to your machine.
