This technology actually works. You have to try it!
SurfBoost acts like a proxy server. It is a client/server solution that brings your web traffic to you at lightning speeds without the need for DSL. You install our client software on your machine. Your machine redirects all web traffic to one of our high-speed servers. Our servers do the caching and compression of the text and images on the web page and then sends the compressed data to your computer. Your computer will decompress the data and display it at lightning speeds. You set the compression level you want and SurfBoost does the rest.
Furthermore, your connection to our server will be a persistent
connection to one of our servers. This means that you can
make one request for a page and all of the components of
the page will start following to your computers at a fraction
of the size. Normally your computer has to open a connection,
make the request and close the connection for each component
on the page. Each web page usually has many images so this
also saves you time in having to negotiate the transfer
of each of the images.
At the core of the SurfBOOST platform is the world’s
best on-line, lossless data compression algorithm. Pioneered
by leading information theorists, it represents one of the
most significant advancements in lossless data compression
in the last 20 years.
One of the most notable advantages of SurfBOOST’s
data compression algorithm is its ability to retain, accumulate
and capitalize on very small amounts of prior intelligence.
By retaining small amounts of intelligence, the SurfBOOST
data compression algorithm is able to consistently achieve
compression ratios that are far beyond those of any other
on-line data compression algorithm available. In an Internet
setting, these superior compression ratios translate into
dramatic increases in the end-users’ effective bandwidth.
Furthermore, these compression ratios result in large reductions
in overall bandwidth usage.
The dynamic adaptability of the SurfBOOST data compression
algorithm is particularly well suited to dynamic and template-based
content such as news, finance, corporate applications and
on-line shopping web sites where the page contents change
regularly but the general format and structure of the page
remains consistent. The single-pass, on-line nature of the
SurfBOOST data compression technology means that data is
streamed across the network without any buffering, making
it ideal for high traffic environments.
