Hi all,
What is the maximum length of characters in a doGet() request supported by the address bar of a browser?
Does it varies for each browser, if so what are the different lengths supported by each of most popular browsers? what is the default length supported by any browser?

I have not yet found any official document that specifies HTTP GET limit, but as everybody suggested, you should keep it to 255 characters or turn to POST after that.
HTH,

The length is browser dependent.

Hi Pradeep,

I need the max limits supported by different browsers(for eg: ie, netscape, etc.,). Or tell me where I can find that.
