Google Web Accelerator

Saw this on my Slashdot RSS feed, downloaded it and I’ve already saved 6.5 seconds….and I’m on my colleges connection. Interesting.

From slashdot.org:

Lukey Boy writes “Google has released a free web accelerator product for both Firefox and Internet Explorer. According to their information page the software uses Google servers as a proxy for web content, delivering the pages to your system more rapidly and compressing them beforehand.”

I think the most unique aspect of this is that it’s geared towards DSL users and not dial-up users. I also wonder if this will help me view pages that have been Farked or Slashdotted.

Here’s the direct link to Google’s Web Accelerator.
