hitting the STOP button on the browser
Posted on 2001-07-12
Can someone exlpain to me what happens internally when I hit the STOP button while the browser is downloading a page.
Does the browser stop downloading the page and also tell the server anything in order to stop sending more packets. What happens to the TCP connection bet the browser and the server ?
Is there a way to get the server stop the CGI process runngina s result of an HTTP request when the user hits the browser STOP button ?
