    GET method query string limit??

    I read somewhere that most browser and server can handle up to 8k of characters in the query string for the GET method. Is it true? I believe it used to be 255 chars. What is the limit for each type of browser?

    I have a query string that's about 3000 characters long and I do not want to use POST. Will it work for most broswers? Which browsers will it not work in?

    Read my post above. You'll get a clue about IE at least.
