We take any web page and turn it into an image (or series of images) but still attempt
to preserve the HTML functionalities. We plan to keep all the functionality in place. Right
now, that's not the case (this is work in progress). Most hyperlinks are still there!
With media rich pages, it's often times far faster for your browser to display an image
of the page rather than construct the page the usual way. Actually, this was we should
be saving a lot of energy! As the page is already 'rendered', there's no need for the
million+ clients to render the page again in the traditional way. Drawing an image on
screen doesn't require much - but drawing a web page properly is complicated.
We try to achieve the same amount of data as is in the original content. This is quite true
especially with the internet 'newspapers'. In other words, it shouldn't take much more room
as an image and sometimes it may take even less data.
Flash clips and similar animations go still currently. There's absolutely no animations on a static image.
It simplifies the power management a lot.
It should be possible to make very simple and 'bugless' browsers - as there's no need
for anything so complicated seen in today's browsers. 'immediateNet' will be a key in making
very simple and fast mobile browsers for the future. Well, not to mention simple mobile phones.
The immediateNet technology suits well for the broadcast media, such as the internet news
services. But for accessing personal mail, or otherwise dynamic content, as well as text-only
pages, the 'immediateNet' doesn't fit so well.
