Boreal Web Accelerator
The Boreal Web Accelerator is a software application that allows you to surf the web up to 7 times faster. It requires no special hardware and will work on a PC or Mac. As a bonus, the software includes pop-up blockers and ad blockers.
The Boreal Web Accelerator will not change your modem's connect speed, but it will significantly speed up web page access by compressing text and images. It can also be configured to speed up outgoing email (SMTP) and FTP file transfers (in passive mode).
The Boreal Web Accelerator will NOT speed up secure (https) transactions, incoming (POP3) mail, non-FTP file downloads such as music and file-sharing applications (ex. Napster, BitTorrent, Kazaa, Gnutella, etc.), online gaming or web streaming of audio or video media.
The Boreal Web Accelerator is designed for people who have an Internet connection slower than 384K. Specifically Boreal dial-up customers, Waverider customers, and 256K Line-of-sight customers will see a significant speed increase by using the Web Accelerator. However, if you're using the Wifi or Mesh system, you probably won't gain anything with the Web Accelerator.
