YES! 

Take a look at Amaya[1] and Cineast[2], two freely available browsers.
Arena, which now integrates the latest libwww should also be HTTP/1.1
compatible. I have not tried it yet, though. 

The most recent implementation of HTTP/1.1 among the above browsers is
the amaya-java one, which uses the Jigsaw HTTP/1.1 library classes.

Hope this helps,
