Does any one know if the G Toolbar, in this case GTB6.6 on MSIE 7.0, pre-fetches also ? ... out of the blue the home page is called without a click from the visitor
Variations of this have been happening for years on my site. I cannot give detailed forensics (got better things to do, such as adding more content), but this is my best intelligence:
Mine is a php site with mod_rewrite. So, urls become:
www.mydomain.tld/ : 200
www.mydomain.tld/mfc/ : 200
I get constant 404s for the last variant, preceded by a 200 for the original. My best intelligence is that some browsers (toolbars?) are post-requesting all variants down the line.
