Speed up Web Surfing

  Posted on Tuesday August 15, @09:34PM Pacific
Infrastructure AlgART HTML Packer (AHP) is a server-side program that can significantly improve the amount of time it takes for a web page to load in. AHP does not require any special software to be installed on the client's computer. Instead it takes advantage of GZip encoding, a new standard for HTML data compression, supported by most modern web browsers. AHP works by dynamically compressing the HTML and JavaScript code of a web page. In addition AHP will modify all hyperlinks on a web page so that when you navigate to another page, you will get it in packed form as well. You can test AHP out on the Infolets front page. I wonder if something like this already exists for Apache?

    There is this module, but it requires you to keep two copies of files on the server - it detects if the browser supports compression and if so, automatically serves the gzipped copy.
