Danny Sullivan has details of Google Web Accelerator, debuting at Google Labs. The new beta tool is designed to speed up the web.
Google Web Accelerator (GWA) is client software (about 800k) along with a plug-in that’s installed on your computer. It’s only available for Windows (at least for now) and works with both Internet Explorer and Firefox. According to Google’s Marissa Mayer, this is the first product that she knows of that’s built and optimized for broadband web users. She added that dial-up users are also welcome to use the software.
I have just downloaded this and will test it out and report back on how it works.
