Karlin has more on the Young Scientist winner.

The person I spoke to said that as he understands it, the browser gets the claimed speed efficiencies by starting to download info to one socket. Adnan’s browser then “short-circuits” the socket or breaks that connection and starts downloading other bits of a page, “using fast servers.” It does a number of things at the same time, which makes a page load faster.

Sounds a bit like how mondern P2P applications download. AFAIR the Z-modem protocol could do the same thing or similar but that was long ago in the days of the BBSes..
