We propose an approach to using multicast in the delivery of Web resources that reduces the load on servers as well as the networks that connect them. We analyze the issues involved in using multicast in the Web, especially those related to routing and addressing. We also discuss the design and implementation of a system based on the existing WWW client and server architecture and the multicast support provided within IP
