Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0127711A2] A method and a system (10) for reducing the amount of bandwidth, and hence the amount of time, required to download Web pages (20), while still maintaining the ability of the user (12) to view all components of the Web page (20). The components of the Web page (20) are selectively minimized, for example by reducing the size of graphical image components, by only displaying animation and/or video stream data as static images. The Web page (20) is preferably automatically parsed and selected components minimized. The minimized Web page (20) may then be stored, for example by the owner of the Web page (20), until requested by the user (12). Alternatively, the Web page (20) may be minimized automatically and dynamically, "on the fly", for example by an ISP, Internet Service Provider (18). Thus, the user (12) is able to view the entire Web page (20) through the Web browser (14), while still enjoying improved performance through reduced down loading time an bandwidth requirement.
