Prefetching is a technique that has the potential to reduce waiting time for retrieving data over slow communications channels, such as wireless mobile networks and dial-up modem Internet connections. Prefetching performance is measured by the accuracy employed in determining what to prefetch within the limited time associated with the currently rendered web page. This article proposes a web application prefetcher based on a Markov model predictor that uses a Knapsack method to conduct object bundling, which increases the rendering speed of future web pages. Through web simulation from actual website traces, the proposed technique reduces the rendering delay of most future web page compared to demand requests.
