Work exactly like "Connection: Keep-Alive" in 1.0.
Browser that smart enough will send "Proxy-Connection: Keep-Alive"
instead of "Connection: Keep-Alive" when it talks to proxy.

Same to "Connection: Keep-Alive". However, I have never seen
netscape or IE send url for multiple sites over the same connection yet.

Netcache from Netapp. (Formerly know as Internet Middleware Cache, which
formerly known as Commercial version of Harvest Cache.)

> What clients use it?

AFAIK, Netscape and IE.
