I have two ideas which I would like to get some feedback on. One is
to use compressed HTML/Java instead of regular HTML. The second is to
implement intelligent pre-fetching for the web.

I have written a paper on each of the above ideas. Please look at
the papers for the details. They are available at:

I would be interested in hearing some feedback from people on these ideas.


P.S. For HTML, if your feedback consists of pointing out that the HTML
content is a very small amount of the web traffic... please DON'T mail
that to me unless you have some numbers... I have already covered this
point in the paper and numbers on the traffic content would be more
useful than relative terms... I'm looking for sources to provide me with
data which can be useful for this analysis.
