           Summary: XMLHttpRequest::abort() should call clearResponse()
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: P4
         Component: WebKit Misc.
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: jarred.nicholls at gmail.com

In the case of ArrayBuffer responses, abort() will not clear the binary buffer.  So it just wastes space.  Subsequent open() calls (which must come before send(), since abort() resets the state to UNSENT) will clear the buffer properly, but that's not necessarily going to happen.  So this is just more memory efficient.

clearResponse() can replace the code in abort(), because it's accomplishing the same thing, it's neater, and it's one function to maintain; an omission like the above can be better avoided.
