ibrowse.conf should not have proxy settings in it by default #87

Just ran into a seemingly mysterious bug where requesting anything from www.google.co.uk would result in an {error, nxdomain} error.

Finally tracked it down to the fact that priv/ibrowse.conf has a proxy setting for that domain. It makes sense to have some examples in this file, but it REALLY should be commented out, rather than being the default for any usage of ibrowse.

Users shouldn't have to edit a file in another library just to be able to make requests to a domain!

Also, I had to trace to figure out why a domain that very obviously exists could not be found by ibrowse but could be found by any other means of HTTP requests in Erlang.

Thank you. Must've been a relic from testing.
