I'm fairly sure there is no difference between the two.  The browser
contacts on the default port 80 and then sends a GET /
request regardless of whether the last '/' is in the address bar.  Take
a look at one of the many browser plugins like Firebug for Firefox to
see it for your self.

Now if you mean URLs like becoming, that's a different story.  I suspect the
first request get's a 30x redirect to the second one.
