Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

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?

Hotmail has become Outlook.com. Is this still an issue? –  Al E. Oct 21 at 17:14
