The earliest ones would hardly be recognized as Web browsers by today's… 
PREVENT THE TRANSMISSION OF USELESS / REPEATED DATA TO THE NETWORK IN INTERNET OF THINGS
TLDR
A new method for reducing the data Traffic in a designed IoT network is proposed and the data traffic on the network is reduced by preventing the transfer of useless / repetitive data to the network environment.
