Well, it's just send a response to the browser.
You thing it's like this:
client -> server obj -> server obj2 -> client
In fact it's:
client -> server obj -> client
client -> server obj2 -> client

Nope it is not what you guess.

Cookies (if enabled). GET style parameters appended to the URL.
Problem with GET and actions is, that the HTTP spec allow the client to
request it more than once. That's way at least netscape asks before
rePOSTing an URL while it reloads a GET URL without user interference.

Actually the HTTP spec allow an browser to get an url repeatedly for any
reasons. This is the HUGE semantic difference between GET/POST. (And not
that the parameters are passed via the url or stdin, ...)
