if http protocol creator might have not thought
keeping in mind the todays web applications, they can
release a new version of the http protocol as this is
a stateless protocol. i know it is going to increase

Umm, is this a question? If so, you should make it a bit clearer what it is.

HTTP is a stateless protocol. What the latest version 1.1 added is the capability to keep connections open for multiple successive requests ("keep-alive"). But no state is kept, and the overhead on the server is not all that big. And the performance benefit on the client is quite noticeable.
