  3. What types of content does RapidLoader Web Accelerator speed up?

    RapidLoader Web Accelerator significantly speeds up web page access.  To achieve this speed up, proprietary lossless compression is applied to text, html, xml, javascript and style sheets.  Proprietary image compression is applied to gif images, jpeg images and Flash content.

    RapidLoader also accelerates email traffic (POP3 and SMTP) using loss-less compression.

    RapidLoader does NOT speed up file downloads (over FTP or file sharing programs), streaming audio/video and HTTPS (secure web sites).
