Lets a server download a diff to a previously cached version of a Web page

The rproxy extensions to HTTP let a server generate a diff relative to a cached instance, whether an HTML page or an image, in a way that is completely general, and transparent to both the server and user agent. This improves response times and reduces network usage, which is particularly important given the increase in dynamic content on the Web (with dynamic content a resource must be exactly the same as the cached instance, or it is downloaded from scratch).
