Mozilla thinks http://www/ebay.com means Yahoo!

I accidentally typed in http://www/ebay.com into my Mozilla browser tonight and was a little confused when Yahoo! came up. When I glanced up at the URL and saw my mistake I was suprised again.

So yes, apparently if I say I want to go to http://www I really mean Yahoo!. Does that mean that Yahoo! is the canonical site for the world wide web? For me Yahoo! is TV listings, but I guess for a good number of folks that is probably true.

Interesting.
