Every day the Web gains more importance for consumers and corporations alike. However, while access to Web-based networks brings tremendous value, the number one complaint among Web users is how long it takes to download Web pages. Whether those pages are delivered from informational Web sites or enterprise applications, the delays are unacceptable.

Throwing bandwidth at the problem will not help significantly. Slow Web pages are caused by a combination of distance between users and servers, and congestion of heavily trafficked networks beyond the control of any one organization.

The application is implemented in Java, and as such it benefits from cross-platform portability.
