With the web continuing to evolve from more than a simple data browsing tool to a portal for social networking and high-bandwidth video applications, Israeli-based startup FasterWeb believes it can improve the speed of existing web technologies like HTML by two to 10 times.
FasterWeb is offering few details on how the technology can improve the performance of existing web sites other than to say that it leverages 45 various techniques. To make the process transparent to the end-user, the optimization process is done either on the content provider or the ISP network. Apparently set to go live on a number of major web sites in the coming weeks, FasterWeb said its solution will work with Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers. When it officially goes live next year, the technology also will be able to accommodate other web browsers including Opera, Chrome and Safari.
