Adding sites to Trusted Sites increases speed/access?

I had a manager call into the IT department, asking if adding sites to his trusted site list will increase the speed of sites? He wanted to know if adding a site to this list would increase not only the load/response time, but download speeds? His second question was if you added a site to the trusted site list, and then used the RDP client to connect to a system at that location, would it increase the responsiveness of that site?

Teh only gain i can think of here by having it in yoru trusted sites would be it would nto have to query your proxy but once it was linked download speeds wpoudl not benefit from it, load speed might increase slighlty but wouldnt be noticeable

I don't think it would increase the speed.  Trusted sites are just allowed to run more activex controls, etc

If anything, it could potentially decrease the speed of the site, although user interactivity would be much better. That is because there are less warnings produced when a site is Trusted (ActiveX controls, scripting, downloads etc.), so users don't need to keep accepting them, but the fact that all these controls will be permitted and will download at the time the page loads could decrease the responsiveness of some web pages.

where you might be able to produce a slight increase is add the ip of the site to the hosts file of the local client, that would stop it needing to go to your dns server to resolve the name to ip, but this is going to be negligable

dcastellani--You should be able to increase loading speed of the site by blocking advertisements.  When at the site, click View|Web Page Privacy Policy.  You should then see what other sites are linked.  Put the URL's of those sites into HOSTS and precede each entry with 127.0.0.1 .
You could even go futher by blocking images.  Click an unnecessary image|Properties and block the URL shown in the Address line.

If its my call, why are you even complaining? Those two comments were the ones that made the most sense to me, and backed up what I had already told the manager.
