I don't know if anyone uses Windows Live Mail (or Hotmail, as I've been using it for the last 8 years), but their newest Ajax-y version does about 50 million requests/second for new information.

It's very annoying and somewhat taxing on the browser, because it acts like a page refresh (almost, but not quite). Is there a way to prevent this behavior?

I use Hotmail everyday in Firefox and IE and haven't noticed this behavior. –  Wayne In Yak Oct 27 '10 at 19:29
