It's more like browsing with a proxy. After you browse for a day 90% of
the sites you want are in the proxy and you can disconnect and keep using
them. Then the remaining 10% will come in slowly, as you need it, when you
connect. When you have too many you purge the cache (selectively or not).
I like the idea but it practically requires broadband.
