1. A method comprising:

  • providing, via a server, a control channel between the server and a mobile device;

    receiving, at the server, over the control channel requests from the mobile device for content, the requests comprising data identifying previously requested content cached at the mobile device;

    implementing, at the server, a heuristic algorithm to build an internal statistical model of patterns of the requests to determine subsequent content that the mobile device is most likely to request;

    pre-fetching, at the server, a portion of the subsequent content when the statistical model indicates that probability of requesting the subsequent content exceeds a first threshold, and otherwise awaiting another one of the requests comprising a content identifier and adjusting the statistical model in response thereto; and

    embedding at least the portion of the subsequent content in responses transmitted over the control channel from the server to the mobile device browser.
