Hey I like the idea, people usually download 10mb worth of crap ad pics 
in the first 5 minutes of their favorite homepage, why not download 10mb 
of quality text? sort of like Internet Explorer's "make it available 
offline" option, it would be great!

Security? It's just text! IMHO if the site is not encrypted, no wait... 
the TEXT transfer through the line... yeah, you have a point there.
