browser should try again in case of 'can't find server'


When my internet is slow & i try to open a web page then I get message in my firefox 3.6.3 that 'can't find server at www.website.com'. It isn't that URL is wrong but maybe connection to DNS server is slow or something similiar. I remember that wget tries 20 times by default to get the file (browsing is downloading+decoding+displaying).
Does any web browser or addon tries repeatedly till it is successful in contacting website server? It can tell me 'trying nth attempt at www.website.com'

well TCP will already do this, it's not like there is only one single attempt to establish a connection, and at some point you have to call it a day and believe that after 5 failed TCP SYN's the server is not there, otherwise you can be drifting into DDOS territory.

ddos=distributed denial of service

If I get 'server at www.website.com is taking too long to respond' .
Can I tweak any setting or would that be also violation of netiquette?
