An operating system module on the User machine monitors requests from internet servers to “push” content onto the user machine in order to facilitate faster web browsing. Websites maintain a list of the IP addresses of users that wish to have updates automatically pushed onto their machine whenever the site is updated prior to the next time they wish to view the page. The timing of this web page prefetching can be configured by the User as an option on the Website. This effectively removes the need for a User Machine to go out and “pull” information from web-servers based on a locally run scheduling algorithm.
