Description Nicholas C. Zakas 2009-11-26 17:51:17 PST
Chrome/Safari makes another request to the page when encountering: <img src=""> <script src=""> <link href=""> For example, if the page is hosted at http://www.example.com/dir/mypage.htm, each of these cause another request to be made to http://www.example.com/dir/mypage.htm. This seems like a serious bug that has the potential to do a lot of damage to servers. Example page: <html> <head> <title>Bad Image</title> </head> <body> <img src=""> </body> </html> Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a page with one of the offending patterns. 2. Load the page while watching HTTP traffic. Actual Results: Observe that there are multiple requests to the same page. Expected Results: There should be only one request to the specified page. Note: Opera doesn't fire a request under any of these circumstances and Internet Explorer only fires a request for <img src="">, but not for the others. Firefox behaves the same as Safari/Chrome.
