Is there any method to cache an entire web page so that when i request for same url again in does not load content from server?

No problem if it does not update contents, and i don't wish to use websql/indexDB etc.

And even i didn't found Manifest File much useful.


Let consider that my website had 3 pages:

page1.html page2.html page3.html

I can visit to any of these pages from any pages.

Suppose if i am in page1.html-> i click a link and go to page2.html. Now if i click a link from page2.html to goto page1.html the hole page should not load from server rather it should be capture during first visit and same thing will be displayed when i revisit the url.

My pages can be extends to any number.

Is it possible in any of the way?

would downloading these pages for offline viewing be acceptable? something like httrack would do that – Journeyman Geek Sep 6 '13 at 6:28
Would setting up a dedicated server on your network to handle all web requests be to extravagant? if not I would suggest building a cache server to server your webpages – 50-3 Sep 6 '13 at 7:09

Yes, you should be able to do what you are trying to do simply by using Cache-Control HTTP headers. See here.
