Polaris, a system infopost.jpg

Researchers at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at Massachusetts The Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a new system, which they have called Polaris, which reduces the loading time of a web page by 34%. The slow loading of web pages continues to be a problem that generates frustration for users, and until now it has been common to try to solve it through data compression.

The MIT researchers have taken a different path; His new technique is based on ‘mapping’ the connections or dependencies between the different objects of a page to dynamically decipher the browser which is the most efficient route to download the different interdependent elements.

Polaris is also aimed, according to MIT, at mobile navigability, something important considering that downloading web pages on mobile phones is usually slower and that mobile phones are already the most important access point to the Internet for a lot of people.
