Closing Tabs stops the traffic?
 
Hi,
Whenever my net becomes slow, i close the tabs that are being currently loaded. My question is does closing a tab helps in stoping the traffic that was incoming because of that tab? or it still keeps incoming? How does it work?
Or if i am downloading a song, and i stop it or i close that window does it keep downloading? or it stops?

It should stop ideally

As today's browser tabs are getting their own process, it will stop that process if the tab is closed.
It's in Chrome, and I think Firefox has already adopted it.
Don't know about Opera and IE.

Yeah .. but that won't cancel the HTTP Request.

No !! FF is yet to adopt it. (Source : http://lifehacker.com/5243843/firefo...ocess-movement)

Opera hasn't. IE 8 has.

When you press stop/close the tab, the browser doesn't cancel the request that was already sent to the server. So, if you are downloading a song ... you song is partially received even after you click the STOP button and then it's canceled as the browser gets the instruction that the data is no longer required.
I have marked many times that, SWF files are loaded even if i close the tab. I can still find them in FF's cache.
