A new technique ready to be applied loads webpages faster in any browser


“Our approach minimizes the number of round trips so that we can substantially speed up a page’s load-time.” The new system, known as Polaris, was been developed by the University’s at Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory”, explained Ravi Netravali, one of the researchers, in a press release. Polaris compiles all the necessary files into a graph for the page that a browser can use to download page elements more efficiently. The team’s tested the the system on 200 different websites, including ESPN, Weather.com, and Wikipedia and it proved to be able able to load web pages 34 percent faster than a standard browser. The work will be presented this week at the USENIX Symposium on Networked Systems Design and Implementation.
