"Google has introduced a technology designed to make Web sites load faster. A beta, or test version, of Web Accelerator was introduced via the Google Labs technology incubation site late Wednesday. The tool, which must be downloaded, will tap into the power of Google's global computer network and thus help sites load faster, according to the company."Published: May 5, 2005, 8:36 AM PDT By Matt Hines Staff Writer, CNET News.com "Web Accelerator works by sending URL requests through company servers designated specifically for speeding site downloads. The application also can compress site data before sending it to computers. ... targeted specifically at computers with broadband connections; Google said that dial-up customers may not see much improvement using the tool.... To use the application, a computer must have Microsoft's Windows XP or 2000 and at least version 5.5 of Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser or version 1.0 of Mozilla Foundation's Firefox browser. Other browsers running on Windows can be manually configured to run Web Accelerator...."

It is getting harder and harder just to keep up with all the things Google is starting to do. Thanks to Google the internet in changing and improving every month.
The sad thing is that the dial-up users have a greater need for it than the current broadband target audience; hopefully Google will expand it for them in the very near future. At least it fully supports Mozilla's browsers!
