Abstract

Abstract The structure of most web sites consists of a composition of web pages that require varying amounts of time to render. Typically, web pages with large amount content (text/images/code) require more time to render than web pages with a smaller aggregate content size. Most users expect this discrepancy among web page rendering times. In this paper, we will describe a semantic link prefetching technique that uses object bundling to expedite the rendering time of slower web pages, at the cost of extending the rendering speed of faster web pages within an established threshold value limit. Study results show that our approach enhances the overall rendering time of slower web pages with imperceptible time extension to other, faster rendering web pages.
