Small note: it's file:///  and not file://. The RFC standard [*] states
that file://localhost/path is special case and 'localhost' can be 
left out; thus file:///path


[*] RFC 1738 / Uniform Resource Locators (URL) / 3.10 FILES

   A file URL takes the form:


   As a special case, <host> can be the string "localhost" or the empty
   string; this is interpreted as `the machine from which the URL is
   being interpreted'.
