Hi,

here's a very generic comment... did the browser makers that are present 
over here actually try to update their implementations to what XHR 
specifies? Or are they actually waiting for it to progress?

The reason I'm asking is the frustrating level of support for HTTP 
extension methods; IE8 blocks many methods (forcing developers to fall 
back to the ActiveX XHR object which *does* support them). Opera is even 
worse: it silently (!) rewrites method names to GET.

Best regards, Julian

PS: Firefox/Opera/Chrome are ok.
