This is actually a netscape problem... the whole idea is a
silly one actually.... people should know to type in ''.

When you turn on the proxy, netscape disables this feature, and
issues a request to the cache to get 'http://apple/' instead of issuing
a request to get '' (it's default behavior).

You could use address-rewriting to say (you are going to have
to modify this to look like the example in the docs):

while (<>){
        if (/\./){
        } else {
                print "www.$\n";
