What is the maximum number of chars I can send from the browser to the
server ?
I was told that the GET method has a limit of 1024 chars and that POST is
unlimited but it seems that this is also limited (I stopped trying at
something around 4000 chars)

Can anyone help me on that issue ??

Thanks in advance,
