    Secure pages, such as those used for online banking and credit card forms and pages accessed over VPN.

    Why doesn't Propel accelerate HTTPS?
    Technically, to accelerate HTTPS it would have to be circumvented by actively breaking the protocols in use and spoofing the desired destination site. However, doing this would

    create a break in the security of the HTTPS protocol, potentially allowing the logging and clear text visibility of the user's private data, such as credit card numbers, PIN codes, and bank access information. Propel Accelerator does not accelerate HTTPS traffic because this level of security risk would be unacceptable to our end users.

    Streaming media, and audio and video files


    Why not compress streaming media?
    Propel does not compress streaming media because video files and audio files delivered in the streaming format have already been compressed to the extent possible. To attempt further compression would degrade the streaming media past an acceptable level.

    How Fast is It?

    It's the fastest Web Accelerator on the market! 

    With Propel Accelerator 6.1, Web pages typically load 3-7 times faster, and sometimes 25 times faster or more while delivering near-original quality final images*. The more you visit specific Web sites, the better

    the performance you will receive.  Propel Accelerator 6.1 increases the speed of Web browsing with all types of connections where speed is a concern. It installs easily and works with most operating systems and browsers.



    * Results vary depending on where and how users surf.

    How Does Propel Web Accelerator Work?

    Propel Accelerator is designed to provide maximum acceleration for all Web sites and additional acceleration for the Web sites you visit regularly. So, the more you surf, the faster your favorite pages will load!
    Specifically, Propel Accelerator speeds up the delivery of Web pages the following ways:

    • Compression.   Propel Accelerator 6.1 introduces new compression techniques which take acceleration to new levels and provides better performance than competing solutions.   This results in a faster page load times and an overall improved Internet performance.
    • Connection Optimization. Propel Accelerator optimizes the communication between your Internet connection and our network of servers. This eliminates the time wasted re-establishing and closing TCP/IP connections.
    • Caching. Propel intelligently retains and reuses Web pages and page elements that have previously been sent to your computer
    • Content Filtering. Propel Accelerator lets you block unsolicited content, such as pop-up ads and in-page ads. Blocking these ads causes Web pages to load faster.
    • Dynamic Imaging.   Propel Accelerator 6.1 delivers fully usable Web pages to end users in significantly less time, without requiring users to settle for tradeoffs between image quality and page load speeds. With Dynamic Imaging, pages initially appear with lower quality preview images, allowing users to navigate through pages as quickly as possible. Image quality then improves automatically and dynamically in the background whenever a user pauses to view the contents of a page. Propel's image-compression technology allows both preview and incremental image data to be downloaded in the shortest amount of time with the least amount of network overhead.

    These techniques produce several results, primarily: faster page load times, bandwidth reduction and reduced impact of traffic congestion from busy hot spots and Internet café connections.
