Caching Web Pages?
How can I cache a web page without navigating to that page. We would like
to preload the web pages, and rich media on to a computer without actually
having to visit it.
Please assist me with this question, we would like create this as a java
The purpose is to help speed up navigation of the internet.

Why use a java crapplet to increase speed? (starting the java runtime in a
browser is like crank-starting a 1930s tractor)...
Instead, you could create hidden frame(s) and set their source to the pages
you want to cache.
Another more popular approach is to simply cache images (since these are

Re: Caching Web Pages?
I have, actually, just finished what I would call 'the ultimate preloader'.
It pre-caches the entire page while you see a 'loading' page, and when done,
you are automatically forwarded to the pre-cached page. You could make the
loading page into a page that is useful to look at, as well. Anyway, here
is a complete description of how this is done:
Choose a page to be preloaded. Mine was my index.htm, so I made a copy called
indexpl(for preloader). I then made another page to be the 'loading' page,
and called it loader.htm.
In the <head> tags of the loader page, I put the following code:
Then, I included the following at the end of the <body> tag:
Then put an image that said loading, and an estimated time.
In indexpl.htm, you need this script in-between the <head> tags:
opener.location = url;
And this in the <body> tag:
Keep in mind that this page is an exact duplicate of index.htm, except for
it makes its 'opener' (the loader page) go to the actual index.htm, and closes
I used this actual code on a web site which is currently in development,
and you can take a look if you wish at http://www.visgenwc.com . Please,
though, use only the code I've told you about here on your own site. (Even
though I will most likely be more than happy to give you permission to use
more if you e-mail me about it. Thanks.)
