You use multiple connections to download multiple resources in parallel.
You use persistent connections to download multiple resources over the
same connection. And you use pipelining to request multiple resources at
once over the same connection (you simply do not wait for the response
to fully arrive before making the next request). You cannot do without
multiple connections e.g. if you make a page with a live video feed and,
say, some "coming up next" feature.
