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.

Active Client Pages is abbreviated to ACP. You need good knowledge of HTML, JavaScript, Ajax and Perl in order to understand this article.

I will use an example to show you how ACP can be used for a fast download, then I will generalize.
