New connection for CSS files - prasath_ragavan - 04-16-2011 06:26 PM

I'm noticing that for some strange reasons the browser makes new connection for the css files called inside the <head>

Ideally the dns should be on the cache and I can see keep-alive for connection header in the response. But still..

Any clue on what's wrong or could be wrong?

IE doesn't deal well with CSS resources served off of a different domain from the base page when doing https: http://webforscher.wordpress.com/2011/01/13/domain-sharding-and-ssl/
