I believe there was a write up in a recent issue of Business 2.0 about this. Seems innovative but that was the first time I had heard of it.
Further reading on their home page: [curl.com...]

Kiss O' Death:
"visitors only need to download a single plug-in called Surge to view the accelerated pages"

The only way it will catch on is if a browser adopts the plugin, say IE 7?

The plug-in is around 40meg by the time it is all downloaded -- far too much of an overhead for most casual users.
An another challenger to Java is rebol (www.rebol.com). At least that is only 0.5meg complete.

Uh, lorax, the article you linked to is five months old.
Curl hasn't generated any serious "buzz" in that five months. Curl is not a contender.

Someone actually put money into founding a company to sell something like that? Snigger. :-)

I know the article is 5 months old but I hadn't heard of Curl before and I didn't find anything here on WMW regarding it. I provided the link as a point of reference rather than as a hot news flash.
