The reason looks to be the url for the script/css.
If the url is the same twice, Chrome/Firefox serializes the requests,
while IE/Opera/MobileSafari launches both requests simultaneously.
Of course, requesting simultaneously doesn't fix anything, as you can
see by trying a link-stuffed version at
The main point here is that it might be acceptable if it's coming from
the webpage domain itself.
But the links are coming from a completely different place.
This is exactly what makes browsing pages with any third-party
analytics, tracking or ad addons so slow and frustrating.
Fixing priorities in subresource download should make experience
considerably more interactive and fun.
