  • Publication number: 20030093520
    Abstract: A system for controlling the amount data downloaded from a server to a terminal over a network. The terminal comprises a browser and a client proxy the function of which is to communicate to the web server requests for information on the size of text data and image data in web pages requested by the browser and to retrieve the text and images associated with the web pages provided that this would not cause certain user defined data download limits to be exceeded. The client proxy is arranged so that a user may select that it automatically performs a partial download of web page data if it determines that a complete download of the data would result in a user defined data limit being exceeded or if such a determination is made that the client proxy downloads no data at all.
