The problem has always existed, but having long-lived responses for the 
purpose of the receiving messages from the server massively exacerbates the 
problem. Most responses are intended to be as short-lived as possible. Also, 
in the scenario you mentioned, if you click a link on a page with downloads 
happening, the browser can abort responses for images that are being 
downloaded, which immediately frees up connections. On the otherhand, if a 
couple connections are indefinitely open, and you open another tab that 
needs a connection, the browsers hangs... indefinitely.
