Does response render tab generate new requests?

Hello. Is it possible that render response tab will make some requests to display content properly (e.g. load static)? I am curious if that behavior can change server state. For example, if there is some balancer server-side. If it does generate requests, it is possible to disable that functionality?

Hi You might see an additional request being sent if it is needed to be able to render the page, for example, if some JavaScript is needed to render the page. Do you have a specific scenario in mind? If so, and the scenario contains details you'd rather not share on the forum, feel free to send an email to support@portswigger.net.
