This additional traffic is even worsening the situation. Since we believe that this will remain the general approach for quite a while, we try to make use of the general technique but try to reduce the destructive effects by retrieving less content which remains finally unread. In our user-specific prefetch mechanism, the prefetching system gathers references by parsing the HTML pages the user browses, identifies the links to other pages, and puts the words describing the links into a keyword list.
