I have a question regarding PHP. I have a situation I'm trying to resolve where someone has a connection open to a PHP server that is taking a good while to execute, say for example 10 seconds. If they open another browser tab to the same server and run some other process which takes again, 10 seconds. Then they open a 3rd. 3 tabs in a single browser. The entire process takes 30 seconds or more. If on the other hand, they open one connection in one tab (chrome for example), and then in an entirely different browser (firefox perhaps) to the same server, and then in Opera open a 3rd connection to the same server, then the result is that all 3 execute in 10 seconds. So the problem is not on the server side, meaning the server doesn't seem to be loaded down at all. The problem seems to be with having multiple tabs open to the same service. It doesn't seem to affect any other tabs -- meaning I can open youtube or whatever else and there's no lag.
Basically I am trying to figure out 'Why' the hash appears in the URL when you submit a contact form and thank you msg appears. Is there any quick way that rather then hash appears, we redirect the user to another page?
