HTTP doesn't have objects.

Most of the popular clients do multiple requests per connection, aka
persistent connections aka keepalives.  Navigator 2.x and later (although
2.x is even more broken than most), MSIE 3.x (possibly earlier), and a
good scattering of less common clients. Most of them do it using
pre-HTTP/1.1 draft methods.
