Misleading option --post303 #2723
But RFC 7231 Section 6.4.4 actually says:
The user agent is not supposed to blindly resubmit the original request to the new URI, which is the whole point of distinguishing 303 from 302. So browsers get this just right.
I guess the option could be useful for some applications that get this wrong, but its description is misleading.
