Yes, this is how HTTP is designed.

For a long time there is the Comet package that provides a "hack" for
pushing events from the server to the client. See the Comet examples
that come with every Seaside distribution.

Also Philippe recently published a WebSocket implementation for
Seaside, but that doesn't work with all web browsers yet.
