  the same information

  images. With email, you request a piece of email. If the email manages
  to escape its little email sandbox, thats the fault of the people who
  wrote the client.

"spyware" is the wrong term here. "improving client access times"
and "decreasing bandwidth requirements" are the right terms here..
