Web accelerator program for Internet Explorer 6.
Posted on 2004-04-18
I'm doing some work which involves a fair bit of uploading of text to a website using an online database management system. Unfortunately the pages are quite big <500kb because they have lots of small images for formatting the text etc. With IE6, each time I click on something it fully re-loads everything on the page.
I'm thinking things would improve heaps if I had a program which would store most of the pages in a cache on the hard drive and only download the -new- stuff thats appeared on the website after each click.
I'm using IE6 at the moment and its quite inadequate. I've tried Mozilla Firebird and Opera and they were heaps faster, but they don't display the website properly and functionality is impaired as the site is designed for IE6.
I'm on 256/256k internet which is about the best, cost effective solution we have in New Zealand, but that doesn't improve upload speeds. The job invloves uploading data every 30secs or so, and the waiting time for loading a near identical page is very long.
The accelerator program needs to be free/open source as well. Can anyone offer any suggestions? So far I've tried cachesentry but that doesn't improve things at all.
Thanks in advance :)
