Default Internet connection up to 375% faster?!?!?

I don't know how good the software is but this website claims that it can boost your Internet connection significantly. All it ask is that you download this little program and install it. I'm afraid to do this since I don't know the effects of it on broadband connections. Anyone tried this before?

I'm more afraid of what it's gonna put on your PC than what it will do to your connection speeds.

That too. I think I need a guinea pig to test this out. Maybe someone on here can do it and let the rest of us know, hehe.

These programs work in a very simply way..

A file is made in the Program Files folder, which just saves a cache of the pages you visit, and most of the pages are downloaded and saved, so when you next visit, your browser just accesses that file, and it loads quicker, it won't speed up download times though, and it most likely has spyware or something..

sounds like a good explanation to me. xp does a simular thing though, which is the reason why you can access pages offline.
