I have an idea about improving the traffic condition on the Internet.  We all have the boring experience of waiting for the document to transfer from the Internet and the transfer rate is only about 100byte/s or less.  Why don't we compress those document first and expand them on-line at the client side.

I mean we define a compress standard using on the internet.  All the documents that are put into the Internet are compressed using the standard, and at the client side the browser expands the documents while downloading the document.  Using such technology, the user can not sense any delay or difference when s/he reads the document just the same as there's no compression.

What's about the your opinion to this idea?

I want your responses.  Write to <a
