>GET is a web request to the browser, where POST sends info to the server. >(They all said this.) I'm assuming they/you meant it's a request "from" the browser. If not ignore all of this. However, isn't this technically true? Here's what it looks like when your browser requests a page: [/home/colin]$ telnet www.yahoo.com 80 Trying 126.96.36.199... Connected to www.yahoo.akadns.net. Escape character is '^]'. GET / <html><head><title>Yahoo!</title><base href=http://www.yahoo.com/ target=_top><m eta http-equiv="PICS-Label" content='(PICS-1.1 "http://www.icra.org/ratingsv02.h [ lots of HTML snipped ] notice the "GET /" command in there, which I typed in myself. Understanding of course that information can be passed in the URL, I would tend to agree that a GET is a web request, even though it's data can come from a form, and a POST is a beefier version of information sending. Of course, the question you asked directly refers to forms, so you'd expect them to be able to speak to the differences in detail.
