Maybe the responses from your server is not cacheable or similar.

Maybe your browser is configured to allow very many connections. If it is
then such storm of requests will cause a lot of connections to be opened,
and with persistent connections enabled in the server these connections
will stay open for a long time.

If the client is working properly then there should only be 2 connections
per client.

The default setting is to only open 2 connections but if you have
installed a download accelerator or similar software which reconfigured
these settings of the browser, or if your browser is buggy, then there may
be very many connections initiated, up to one per image concurrently
