What types of content does MegaBoost Web Accelerator speed up?
MegaBoost 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, PNG images (with MegaBoost Web Accelerator version 5.0 and later) and Flash content.
MegaBoost also accelerates email traffic (POP3, IMAP and SMTP) and FTP using lossless compression.
