1. A method for enabling predictive pre-downloading of network objects to a web client from a web server on a network, the method including steps of:

  • intercepting at a device a request from the web client to the web server for a first network object;

    intercepting at the device a response to the request from the web server;

    determining at the device a second network object most probable to be requested in the future from the web server;

    sending a first message from the device to the web client informing the web client of the second network object to be cached by the web clientsending a second message from the web client requesting the second network object in response to the web client receiving the first message; and

    receiving the second network object at the web client such that the second network object is predicatively pre-downloaded into a cache by the web client whereby a latency for requesting the second network object is reduced when requested in response to an actual user request.
