Abstract

This article describes an application aimed at reducing the level of screen refreshing when accessing web sites or portals. With conventional browser technology the screen is refreshed each time a User initiates an HTTP transaction. This refresh occurs even if there are no actual changes to the content. Existing methods of alleviating this problem are based on the use of script technologies such as Java applets. The system described in this article reduces the level of screen refreshing without the need to alter the actual web site functionality.
