Overview of research:

Http is the protocol used predominantly on the Internet, and network backbones are under huge pressure. On the other hand, user demand on the Web is growing relentlessly, and there is an increasing demand for an instant response to data requests. Therefore, the W4C WG set out to use http cache technology to reduce traffic on the WIDE backbone, and evaluated the beneficial effect this had on http response.
