Abstract

Distributed Monitoring of Historical Web Page Progression for Predictive Presentation Purposes Disclosed are two fundamental ideas: (1) web page histories across a broad selection of users to perform predictive caching at the desktop or at the internet service provider; (2) the idea of using aggregated sequential web page histories across a broad selection of users to perform user prompting of possible "interest pages" of relevance to the current topic. Over the past few years, the distribution of content over the world wide web has fundamentally changed the way that people exchange information. And, the explosion of business models has led to many new and innovative ways of delivering heightened information to the desktop. Mechanisms that will speed the delivery and efficiency, and methods that both speed the download process and bring germane pages to the user's attention would be highly desirable.
