Rather than using compression, MIT and Harvard researchers have adopted a different approach to cutting page load-times in their new Polaris browser tech.
Researchers at MIT say a framework they've developed for browsers can reduce page load-times by up to 34 percent and enhance data-compression techniques used in Chrome.
MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and Harvard University researchers argue that the framework could, if adopted by browsers, make a significant contribution to existing compression-focused efforts to cut page load-times. Rather than using compression, their take is based on a new 'dependency tracker' called Scout...
