You can use fetch(), Response.body.getReader() which returns a ReadableStream, TextDecoder(), Blob(), URL.createObjectURL().

Note, at device having limited RAM or low available disk space, after clicking Save at Save File dialog four minutes and twenty seconds 4:20 elapsed before the Save File dialog closed, followed by an additional one minute and thirty seconds 1:30 before the .crdownload extension was removed from the file at file manager GUI. During the first 4:20 period where the file is downloading to filesystem and the Save File dialog is visible the mouse pointer is movable, though the UI is temporarily unresponsive to clicks or attempts to change tabs. When the Save File dialog closes and the the file is still downloading to filesystem, having extension .crdownload the UI returns to normal functionality.

At the conclusion of the process described above the file was successfully downloaded to local filesystem having a total size of 189.8 MB (189,778,220 bytes).

    var progress = document.querySelector("progress");

      return fetch(url)
      .then(response => response.body.getReader())
      .then(reader => {
        var decoder = new TextDecoder();
        var json = "";
        label.innerHTML += `Request successful.<br><br>Reading request body at ${new Date()}.<br><br>`;
        return processData(result) {
            if (result.done) {
              // do stuff when `reader` is `closed`
              return reader.closed.then(function() {
                // return `json` string
                return json;
            json += decoder.decode(result.value);
            output.innerHTML = ` ${json.length} of ${progress.max} bytes read`;
