The Internet provides near-instantaneous, content-rich communications between geographically distant agents. A key limiting factor on the usefulness of the Internet has until recently been the technological limitations on the type and direction of this data exchange. All transfers involving the HTTP protocol have been limited to half-duplex, unidirectional, stateless serial communications, or TCP-based communications between bandwidth-consuming plug-ins such as Applets, or security-prone, vendor-specific technologies such as ActiveX components.
