Why care about HTTP Handlers? Are there any real advantages? RRS feed

    I am reading about HTTP Handlers in ASP.NET. With what I read in few blogs, I can sum up as:

    1. Default is a Page Handler which processes all requests to asp.net pages.
    2. You can create a custom handler to perform any specific operation. For example, if someone clicks an image on a web page, I can capture the image file name and process any specific request for this image.

    From the time I started leaning ASP.NET, I didn't find any scenario where there is a necessity to use custom handlers.

    Can someone let me know any real-life scenarios where the use of handlers can boost performance or make life easier?
