Large-Allocation response header tells the browser that the page being loaded is going to want to perform a large allocation. It's not implemented in current versions of any browser, but is harmless to send to any browser.
WebAssembly or asm.js applications can use large contiguous blocks of allocated memory. For complex games, for example, these allocations can be quite large, sometimes as large as 1GB. The
Large-Allocation tells the browser that the web content in the to-be-loaded page is going to want to perform a large contiguous memory allocation and the browser can react to this header by starting a dedicated process for the to-be-loaded document, for example.
