What!?!  A web browser doesn't query DNS servers, it asks your TCP/IP
stack for such details, and *that* does the DNS queries.  It doesn't
matter what application (web browser, news agent, etc.), you're using,
none of them directly query DNS servers.

(Currently running FC4, occasionally trying FC5.)
