This work addresses three problems that are associated with Web browsing: (a) low bandwidth available to the end user who is connected via slow modems or outdoor wireless networks, (b) long and variable latencies in document access, and (c) temporary disconnections of mobile users. Three techniques are used with a variety of heuristics in order to overcome these problems: (a) pro ling user and group access patterns and using these pro les in order to pre-fetch documents, (b) ltering HTTP… CONTINUE READING
