This is tricky for dynamic web sites. For a largely static set of websites, then a caching web proxy in front of your browser would help, beyond your browser's own built in caching. Also adjust your browser's caching to a large-ish size. Beyond that I don't have a good solution. dynamic and interactive web content isn't designed to be snapshot-able. Browsers with predictive pre-fetching help a small degree here, but otherwise you can re-walk your previous footsteps, assuming the http Cache tags are sane.

For a one-off user, this does fit better on
