Abstract

Websites are becoming larger in size, more complex in what they display and are updated with greater frequency than ever before. This means users can receive up to date, complex information. But what this also means is that whenever new information is presented, whether it be a new image, new text within a paragraph, or subtle changes to layout, the user has to download all of the information again. Web browsers will cache information and store blocks of information. However, with continually updating web pages becoming the norm, the way in which web browsers cache needs improvement. This solution provides a way in which smaller downloads are required, a greater understanding of updates is shown and makes sure that the user is always presented with the most recent information. Even if that information is within a non-obvious location.
