Taking Curl for a Whirl

December 5, 2001 | Source: Wired.com

A new Web site technology called “Curl” that makes browsing and Web site development faster has been developed by Web pioneer Tim Berners-Lee and other MIT experts.

Curl’s speed acceleration is due to the use of a single application to run diverse content and a downloadable browser plug-in that uses the site visitor’s own CPU to process pages built with Curl for page redraws, graphics processing, database duties and other tasks that formerly required bandwidth-demanding server-side processing.
