Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

  1. Open up the developer tools
  2. Go to the demo page here:
  3. You should see multiple requests made for the same SVG image to the same URL

Expected Results:

When fetching any image type (png / svg / gif) that doesn’t contain a fragment ID, the requests are all bundled into a single request so the same image doesn’t need to be requested more than once.

Since the fragment ID is not part of the URL that is sent to sent to the server, it should not impact the way resources are fetched.

The fragment identifier is strictly for the client to utilize in determining which portion or fragment of the document to display once returned.

The expected behavior is that fragmented URLs would be fetched as efficiently as their non-fragmented counterparts since this is obtainable from a server perspective.

Actual Results:
