Please be aware that this tag can be considered in some cases depending on where you visit to be extrememly anti-social, overloading servers, etc.. Especially if you set the figure to some obscene high value.

I personally don't really trust most kinds of 3rd party web accelerator. The only one that I use is Google's and I still don't see any difference.

yes.. I meant broadband. just generalize it sometimes :tazz:

and web accelerators are commonly full of spyware, as are download accelerators.

I have google's web accel. on another computer of mine, and it is extremely slow. I'm just warning you...it's difficult to uninstall (or it is for me, since there is no uninstall link, and even removing it from the registry hasn't seemed to work). Anyway, that little piplining trick is great. I did that a few months ago but i screwed up so it didn't make a big difference. I just did it the right way now, and it's great...

not really, it's ok just to have around. It says that I already saved several hours. And I uninstalled and reinstalled it many times so it works for me.

It claims it "saved" me hours. However, this seems totally inaccurate, as when it is disabled, everything is much faster.
