Seems NO to me now since I can not find tcpdumps show IE
can get benefit by doing this and there is no point for
Netscape to compete something might not exist.
Any tcpdump files between IE/IIS are highly appreciated.

This might be out of the end2end scope. In the tcpdump we
collected, the browser claimed itself "HTTP/1.0" and the
server closed its outgoing data flow after the first
request. There is no reason for the client to send the
second request through the half-close TCP connection,
especially it anticipates the reply data from the server.

The same claims apply to my messages too.
