When I develop web sites I like to have them run locally and responding to a more useful name than localhost/site. It used to be you could write rules in hosts pointing to 127.0.0.1. It would seem you can't any more, as when I add a rule like
127.0.0.1 Site typing "site" in the address window of the browser won't resolve to 127.0.0.1.
Is there a way to get the hosts file settings respected or is there another method I can use instead?
