1.0  Webpage Caching, Speeds-up web browsing & file downloads.

What is Caching and how does it speeds up browsing, saves Internet bandwidth and costs. ?

Browser Cache: When a Web page is requested, it is saved to disk. If it is required again, the disk copy is used. This technique is used in all web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer.

 

Our new Accelerator Cache: In a proxy cache like, users request pages from a local server (the computer where the Accelerator is installed) instead of direct from the remote webserver. The Accelerator gets the page, saves it on disk and forwards it to the user. Subsequent requests from other users of the cache get the saved copy, which is much faster and does not consume Internet bandwidth. The real benefits accrue from using a proxy cache on a LAN with many users. Any new page accessed by anyone is stored in the the Accelerator cache. The next person to access that page gets the cached copy, at full LAN speed, rather than going to the remote source. Using a cache speeds up Web browsing & downloading of files significantly. This may be a thousand times faster, or more.

 

The Accelerator not only stores webpages but also all types of files including multimedia files - images, video, music, animations. So when users access these files it speeds up downloading of files significantly - at LAN speed.

2.0 Website blocking and filtering.

  • Blocks Banner Ads - By default, the Accelerator blocks most banner advertisements thus saving bandwidth and money.

  • Option to add any number of websites that should be blocked. Wild cards are supported. For example: http://ads.*

3.0  Online Privacy Protection Options for all users in the network.

  • Hide browsing footprints and preferences.

  • Disable cookies and selectively enable cookies for defined websites.

  • All users in the network can benefit by this global privacy option in the Accelerator. Individual users need not have any special software to protect their online privacy.

4.0  Supports any http (web) proxy server software.

This is useful when you use another any proxy server but would like to use cache features. You can also install the Accelerator on another machine and configure it to go through any proxy server software installed on another machine.

 

5.0  Option to enable direct connection to remote server port through https connection.

Most proxy software will not allow connection to a website that require a specific port number. For example: https://remotesite.com:8000 There is an option to enable access to one or more ports, but only through https connection.

 

6.0  Restrict users from downloading large files - movies, music files, by setting a limit in megabytes (MB)

7.0  Disable caching of specific websites.

8.0  Secure Proxy (SSL) service required to access Secure (https) sites is configurable in settings.ini
