I am confused why my host name in /etc/hosts works for Google Chrome only. Not on Safari, not on Firefox, not from command-line tools like
## # Host Database # # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface # when the system is booting. Do not change this entry. ## 127.0.0.1 localhost 255.255.255.255 broadcasthost ::1 localhost 127.0.0.1 cool.pl.localhost
Only on chrome
http://cool.pl.localhost:8080 works. On other browsers I can reach the site only by entering
Confused what is misconfigured. What magic is Google Chrome doing that it works?
