How does BrowseBlast Work?
Network Optimization - Standard web browsing uses the publicly available Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). However this "one size fits all" approach doesn't always give you the fastest browser speed. BrowseBlast uses a customized proprietary transport protocol, which automatically adjusts itself to the type of network being used and data being received. You always get to the web site as fast as possible with BrowseBlast.
Caching and Content Optimization - The BrowseBlast servers keep copies of frequently visited web pages on hand. This saves you time because they are immediately available to be sent super-fast to you.
Compression - BrowseBlast uses state of the art lossless data compression for text and user controlled lossy compression for graphics. The BrowseBlast server uses proprietary patent-pending compression technology to deliver the data faster. A small companion software kernel on your computer returns the data to it's original form so you see the page the way it was meant to be seen.
