Dear all,
1. How do we force browser to use HEAD method instead of GET method when send request to HTTP server?
2. What are the reasons that the browser use GET method as default instead of POST method?
thanks

1. Just answered here
2. In what case? Do you mean for the FORM tag? It is specified by the w3c specification. That's all. POST could also have been the default instead of GET.
