With the increasing amount of dynamic and personalized Web content, researchers start to address the acceleration of the first time access of Web pages, hopefully to bring significant improvement to content delivery. While most of these efforts are related to the optimization of connectivity usage (e.g. persistent connection) and efficient content encoding (e.g. data compression and transcoding), this paper tries to address the same issue from the view point of content retrieval dependence within a Web page. A novel mechanism, called the object declaration (OD), is proposed to pass information about embedded object usage of a page to a client earlier, preferably without the need to fetch the data chunks of the page container object that defines them. Result shows that Web page latency can be reduced by about 3% to over 13%.
