    Verify http link

    HI all,

    I've been trying to verify a http link before downloading it and am having some trouble.

    I have found the page http://www.jibbering.com/2002/4/httprequest.html that describes using a XMLHttpRequest and opening the http connection using a http type HEAD.

    This always returns nothing, if the link is there or not.

    Does anyone know a better way to verify a http link before accessing its full content?

    Hello,

    I'm sorry to say but the HEAD request does not seem to work, at least with 7.1 browser. Your observations are right, initiating HEAD request doesn't even launch connection point selection so there is not even change to get response. I'll file a bug report about this issue ASAP.

    Br,

    Re: Verify http link

    This page lists POST and GET as available supported methods to retrieve remote data:

    It would be indeed useful to know if other methods are/will be supported.

    Bad news, I got confirmation that HEAD request is not / will not be supported in Browser 7.1/7.2.
