Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0020957A1] A system (42) as provided for viewing cached content passively and actively. Content from the Internet (60) or other information sources is stored on the disk drive (55) of a computer. The computer is programmed to make snap shots of selected content and to generate a cache movie of the content by sequentially providing snap shots on a display device (47). A user is provided with application software for the computer to customize the cache movie by selecting music for playback during the cache movie. The tempo of the cache movie is synchronized with the selected music and can be varied, depending on the type of music selected by the user. The user can selectively stop and start (54) the cache movie to actively browse content corresponding to the snap shots therein. Hyper-links in the snap shots permit access to related cached content. The user can then resume playback of the cache movie for passive viewing of cached content.
