  annote = {In this paper a novel protocol, WebTP, is introduced. WebTP is a receiver-driven, request/response protocol primarily intended to be the transport protocol for HTTP transfers. WebTP tries in as much as possdible to adhere to the mechanisms used in TCP. For example, the flow control scheme follows the TCP model of an initial slow-start phase followed by a congestion avoidance phase. During congestion avoidance, WebTP employs a hybrid window-based and rate-based scheme. The receiver calculates a smoothed estimate of the round-trip-time and communicates this to the sender, which paces its transmission of packets in accordance to this round-trip-time estimate. Since the responsibility for reliable transmission of packets in WebTP lies completely with the receiver, it needs to have knowledge about the objects (e.g. the components of the Web page) it requests. The receiver accomplishes this by using a queue called the Expected Objects Queue which is a list of all the objects it has asked for but not received yet. Simulations show that WebTP achieves efficient utilization of a link, at the same time being fair to competing TCP flows.},
