sure, but it depends on how your system is set up.

Many sites cannot handle the address without the 'www' because their system
admin is brain dead.

If fact, I never liked 'www', I've been using 'web.torres.ws' for years. And
yes, 'www' also works, and it works without either as well.

BTW: The browser really has nothing to do with it. It's all on how your DNS
is setup.
