Authenticating Via Categorical Preferences
Let's get rid of "Secret Questions" alltogether. Let's present an attacker with a hundred questions, only 6 of which he should answer. But it will still authenticate you without making you spend a half-hour filling in radio buttons.
Page-Level Caching of Dynamic Content using Javascript
Using DOM manipulation, dynamically created iframe, and a cached flat-HTML file - we can more efficiently serve what were previously dynamically created content pages like forums and blogs.
