The slowest thing about browsing the Web is the Web itself. Many factors affect the speed at which you can access sites, such as your phone line, the route to the destination and even the amount of traffic online at that time of day.
IE 4.0 lets you work offline and browse through the cache (saved pages) on your hard drive. Simply select File, Work Offline from the IE 4.0 main menu. Your online connection disconnects, and you're able to read files directly from your hard drive. If a page isn't stored in your cache, you see a small "no" sign (a black circle) next to the cursor. If you click a link that connects to a page you don't have on your drive, you get the options of either going online to retrieve the page or remaining offline.
