The popularity of web resulted in heavy traffic in the Internet. This intense increase in internet traffic has caused significant increase in the user perceived latency. In order to reduce this effectively. Prefetching techniques are found to be best suitable. Prefetching technique is motivated by the fact that, in general, once a user goes to a web site; the user generally browses around for several pages before leaving for another site. Since the user follows hyperlinks upon their interests, it is likely that links are not followed uniformly.
