Working on a big site we had a problem with overloading of the server cluster. While analyzing the logs we discovered a problem of Samsung Android devices (Galaxy Note, S3, …): from time to time in the logs we found a sequence of requests to the same URL generated by a browser loop.

I’m talking about 30 to 100 request in few seconds which are clearly a loop of the browser.

The loops do not start during a navigation, since the request has not a “referrer” and the URLs are always AdWords campaigns URLs.

This make me suspect the loop starts when an banner or generally an ad is clicked from an application: the application opens the Android predefined system browser and for whatever reason it starts to loop.

Any experience with that?
