Yep. That said, even supposedly well behaved clients (e.g. Apple's Safari) do tend to explicitly close their connections. Go figure.

Another trick perhaps worth implementing is to provide proper "last-modified" and "etag" so the server can handle "if-modified-since" and ""if-none-match" with a graceful "304 Not Modified". Both IE and the Mozilla family do send those headers.

And gzip is your friend :)

  Xavante went from 1100 to
2000 requests/sec with SAJAX (with 10, 100 and 250 clients)

Excellent! This nicely illustrates that even a tiny Lua HTTP server can perform quite decently :)
