web accelerators are a crock of poop.....they basically just save coppies of the most often visited sites on your computer so that things load faster...they do'nt speed up downloads or your actual surfing speed..as if you've never been to the site.....then it has not cached version...more trouble than they're worth

dsenette's right. :whistling:

And then there's other "tricks" that accelerators employ. One type of "trick" results in lower quality of surfing: sacrifice quality for performance.

I wouldn't be looking at web accelerators. :blink:

However, there is a program that can accurately speed up downloads by spliting them in 2 or 3 and downloading all sections at once. And you can even pause downloads so you can finish downloading later! That program is called LeechGet. It is free!

You can download it here: http://www.snapfiles...4/leechget.html
