While internet speeds are increasing, complex web pages can take what seems like forever to load, until now.
"It can take up to 100 milliseconds each time a browser has to cross a mobile network to fetch a piece of data. As pages increase in complexity, they often require multiple trips that create delays that really add up," explained MIT PhD student Ravi Netravali. "Our approach minimizes the number of round trips so that we can substantially speed up a page's load-time." Researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and Harvard University have developed this new approach which promises to decrease page-load times by 34 percent.
