As you are surfing the net, you notice that some web pages are very long. When such pages are downloaded, they generally take a long time to be displayed by the browser. In this article, I show you how you can design such long pages so that they download fast and are rendered (at the browser) fast. The secret is to use Active Client Pages.
Downloading Long HTML Pages with ACP (Page 1 of 4 )
Definition of Active Client Pages
I am an innovator of Active Client Pages. If you're unfamiliar with them, Active Client Pages are defined as the production of HTML pages at the client computer by the browser using web technology.
The secret of Active Client Pages lies in the fact that after some initial information has been downloaded by the browser, other information is downloaded in advance in the background, without the knowledge of the user. For our long page, if the initial information is short (one screen), it will not take long to be downloaded and displayed on the screen.
I will use an example to show you how ACP can be used for a fast download, then I will generalize.
