    GET and POST Requests in a Browser

    After getting a feel for how HTTP looks in plaintext format, it's time to see HTTP in action with a browser. A web browser offers a GUI for HTTP that allows visitors to communicate with websites and web applications in engaging ways, all while using the HyperText Transfer Protocol. During this stage, you'll see how a browser translates user actions into HTTP requests, and subsequently renders those HTTP responses for display. 11 steps
