HTTP Methods
HTTP defines a set of request methods to indicate the desired action to be performed for a given resource.
TRACE - The TRACE method performs a message loop-back test along the path to the target resource. Check: https://www.blackhillsinfosec.com/three-minutes-with-the-http-trace-method/
Other HTTP Methods are:
GET POST
PUT
PATCH
PUT is expecting full resource details to modify, while PATCH is expecting with partial details itself to modify stuff
OPTIONS
Using Get request with payload is not a good practise for client applications like in frontend websites, while in RFC protocol nothing is stopping from using that approach.
