    That would be up to the client. It is still a client receiving bytes using system calls. The data is not magically appearing.

    Have any of you considered that Javascript can background download a gigabyte of images without indications today with HTTP/1.1? Worry about that instead.

      Header compression and tls

      Wouldn't the header compression make it easier to circumvent ssl?

        At least with Opera, JS downloads do have an indicator and stop if you press stop.

          TLS compression is completely different from transferring compressed stuff. It's safe to transfer compressed stuff.
