Fast Browsing

The SetextBrowser renders the requested webpage first at the server before the webpage will be displayed as Setext in your browser. Due to the fact that all images of the requested webpage are ignored completely your browser has an easy job. See the following examples:
  1. www.washingtonpost.com needs 258 requests according to tools.pingdom.com and loads in 6.4 seconds. The SetextBrowser needs 10 requests and loads this page in 2.2 seconds;
  2. www.cnet.com needs 268 requests according to tools.pingdom.com and loads in 5.9 seconds. The SetextBrowser needs 10 requests and loads this page in 2.0 seconds;
  3. www.amazon.com needs 34 requests according to tools.pingdom.com and loads in 5.4 seconds. The SetextBrowser needs 10 requests and loads this page in 1.9 seconds. 
Did you notice. The Setext version is faster than original version. This is possible because we need only one request for the requested webpage at the server followed by 10 request from our server to deliver the webpage to your browser. Of course the SetextBrowser will not beat, the relative small number of,  really fast loading sites. However the SetextBrowser will load an avarage webpage faster than the original.
