    Hi all,

    I am creating an API for the ESP8266 that allows for easier programming (so far it is just for Visual Basic to get a test working). But one thing I have noticed is that if you connect to the ESP8266 server with firefox as expected only one channel is used. If chrome connects it always takes 2 channels. The first channel is released when chrome is closed or stops trying to load the page but the second channel is only freed upon a timeout.

    Anyone know what chrome is up to?

    Is chrome using one port for sending and one receiving? Or one port for secure and one for non-secure?
