A group of researchers from the University of Michigan managed to create a system that speeds up the mobile web speed by up to 50%. Through this software, the loading time becomes much lesser from mobile devices without having to change the browser or change the programming of web pages.
The team led by Harsha Madhyastha, a professor of engineering and computational science at the University of Michigan, discovered that when a user loads a page from a mobile device, the software demands all resources from it, or the equivalent of requesting a hundred of URLs, before showing the actual web page.
According to the researchers, during this process – unfortunately, currently necessary – the mobile processor remains inactive waiting for the server to respond to multiple requests.
They indicated that thanks to the system developed by this team and named Vroom, with each URL request, the new architecture will group all the necessary resources in such a way that when the server receives a request from the browser, in addition to responding to that request, the system will report all other dependent resources.
“From the user’s point of view, Vroom manages to reduce loading times by half,” explains Harsha Madhyastha, a professor of engineering and computational science at the University of Michigan.
He commented that this compression is achieved from the server, because instead of the useless give and take that slows down the load at present, the new architecture sends the information of the dependent resources before the browser requests it.
