On this page by Yahoo, it says that GET requests are faster than POST requests because the browser breaks POST requests into 2 packets.
However, that article seems at least a decade old. Is that information still accurate? It seems ridiculously easy for a browser developer to make POST just as fast as GET.
I see a lot of people saying GET is twice as fast. But sending 2 packets does not take twice as much time as sending 1 packet. Could this possibly be because POST is doing a preflight test and GET is not?
I was not able to find any recent information about how browsers handle packets for GET and POST methods.
