localhost, oh localhost, where art thou?

When your webserver isn’t running localhost isn’t very useful! Firefox/Firebird/Mozilla and possibly other browsers will then search for localhost and right now it finds!
The author of that site wondered where all his visitors were coming from before the cookie dropped! The last localhost I remember on Google was an Australian localhost AFAIR. It looked commercial and the guy linked above should put a few Google ads on his site!
How to avoid visiting his site? Disable keywords in Firefox.
