Google Web Accelerator is an application that uses the power of Google’s global computer network to make web pages load faster. Google Web Accelerator is easy to use; all you have to do is download and install it, and from then on many web pages will automatically load faster than before.
How does it speed up your internet connection ?
– Sending page requests through dedicated Google machines, Storing copies of frequently visited pages, downloading only changed pages, prefetching specific pages, managing your Internet connection to reduce delays and compressing data
Google Web Accelerator is currently optimized to speed up web page loading for broadband connections. So the faster broadband internet connections get more speed, while the dial up internet user still try for speed. Google Web Accelerator only speeds up web pages, not large data downloads such as MP3 and streaming video files. For security reasons, Google Web Accelerator won’t speed up pages encrypted with the HTTPS: protocol.
During the first part of the beta testing period, users outside of North America and Europe may not see much improvement in their web page loading speed.
