FineGrounds updated Condenser speeds content delivery by sending only the changes between Web pages and by using FlashForward tags that optimize object caching. The product should be especially useful for content providers whose clients connect over dial-up lines.
LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Companies should estimate the number of years they anticipate end users coming to a Web site over dial-up lines. The longer that time span is, the greater the payoff will be for companies using Condenser 3.0. PROS: Requires no code changes to original Web site content; substantially reduces bandwidth consumption. CONS: Doesnt work with older browsers.
