* "Because it stores copies of websites, Akamai has the potential to access 15% to 30% of total Web traffic. Two years ago, it began offering to track Web users’ browsing activity for advertising purposes. But instead of using pixels to monitor Web users as they move from page to page within a website, Akamai can simply view those users’ movements directly. So it doesn’t need to get pixels on every page." [Source](http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2010/11/30/a-new-type-of-tracking-akamais-pixel-free-technology/)
