The method attribute specifies how to send form-data (the form-data is sent to the page specified in the action attribute). The form-data can be sent as URL variables (with method="get") or as HTTP post transaction (with method="post").

Notes on GET: Appends form-data into the URL in name/value pairs The length of a URL is limited (about 3000 characters) Never use GET to send sensitive data! (will be visible in the URL) Useful for form submissions where a user want to bookmark the result GET is better for non-secure data, like query strings in Google Notes on POST: Appends form-data inside the body of the HTTP request (data is not shown is in URL) Has no size limitations Form submissions with POST cannot be bookmarked

basically by GET you can see something like that for example http://www.domain.com/index.php?user=Garg
