Current popular Web browsers simply fetch the entire Web page from the server in a greedy fashion. This simple Web-fetching mechanism employed by browsers is inappropriate for use in low-bandwidth networks since they unnecessarily cause large response time for users. In this paper, the authors first analyze the reasons that cause large response time by considering several factors, including the properties of typical Web pages and browsers, the interaction between the HTTP and TCP protocols, and the impact of server-side optimization techniques. They, then propose a new Web-acceleration solution called WebAccel, which consists of three easy-to-deploy browser-side optimization mechanisms to reduce the user response time.
