Google Web Accelerator is...
• Designed for Broadband – Web pages load even more quickly on DSL and cable connections
• Easy to use – Simply install and enjoy faster web browsing in seconds
but how to use it in KWF
i cannot use it
Google Web Accelerator works mostly by predicting the next link a user is going to click based on his/her mouse movements and then prefetching this webpage. This means
A) all your webtraffic flows through Google proxies (BAD! for privacy reasons),
B) a LOT more bandwith is used than without the Accelerator (lots of pages are prefetched from links that are never clicked on). This is a big issue if you pay for your bandwith usage,
but most importantly in respect to KWF:
C) it cannot be done on the KWF, since it is based on user mouse movements
You can still flow all traffic through the Google proxy to take the pages from the Google-cache. This is sometimes faster then getting the page directly from the webserver which may be on a slow link. However, on the total websurfing this is a marginal improvement. Not worth the privacy issues, I think.
I think there are too many issues with their approach and will not use it (on the desktop) regardless of the limited speed increase it may provide.
