Maximum URL length is 2,083 characters in Internet Explorer

The spec for URL length does not dictate a minimum or maximum URL length, but implementation varies by browser. On Windows: Opera supports ~4050 characters, IE 4.0+ supports exactly 2083 characters, Netscape 3 -> 4.78 support up to 8192 characters before causing errors on shut-down, and Netscape 6 supports ~2000 before causing errors on start-up.

Chetan, I think this is the max length of url's parameters, not the whole url. If saikrishna is happy with that, I'm happy with that too ;)
