POST is no more secure, realistically, than the GET method. Both pass
data around in plain-text form.
In a perfect world web browsers wouldn't cache pages which were POSTed to
as the HTTP specification says. At least, that's my understanding of it.
Browsers -are- free to cache GET'ed pages though, because logically if the
URL is identical to the other one the same data will be returned. So,
switching to GET makes sense, because so long as the URL is slightly
different each time the browser won't cache the page.
Of course, in the real world not all browsers were made to spec, and some
cache POSTed pages. So, to the original poster: It seems like your page
is doing the Right Thing... but your browser isn't.
