    I just wanted to tell everyone about a little utility called Broadband Optimizer. If you have a broadband internet connection (cable modem/dsl) and OS X, this utility is a must. I've seen a huge drop in my page loading times, just from installing this utility in Jaguar.

    The file can be found here:

    I didn't do any benchmarks, so if anyone can give before and after times for loading a page, it would be appreciated. Also, I'd like to hear comments on people currently using it.

    Thanks,
    Draft

    i gave this app a try in 10.1.5, and didn't find any speed improvements to my connection. Now, after installin jag, i found a huge speed boost on my connection.. So i don't think i'll be needing this app :)

    i've tried it about 3 months ago. but unless it's got a much simpler installation now, i'm too lazy to mess around with it.

    I just tried it... easy to "install"... but it didnt make any difference on bandwidth speed tests.
