Is file download over Ajax call supported?
I'm reading that file downloads over ajax call isn't supported by modern browsers. There seems to be a security risk associated with it; and I'm curious to learn more. Here's the scenario I'm currently working on -
- User clicks on the 'Download' button
- An ajax call is made to the server. The server then looks for the file on CDN (which uses a 'data' subdomain).
- Server fetches the file locally and serves it to the user.
But this doesn't really work. I'm looking for reason
Would really appreciate if someone could explain this a bit in more detail. Thank you in advance.
