This is really freaking cool:
Google caches the web already, and they’ve got amazingly good net connections with amazingly fast web servers. Now you too can harness the POWER OF GOOGLE! By installing this browser plug-in you can access pages through Google’s cache instead of from the server the site your browsing is served from.
“But what about pages that update frequently?” you ask. Ahhah – Google’s got a solution! It caches the specific parts of the page that don’t change, but if part of the page has changed, you’ll get the updated version of that piece from the original server.
Even more amazing – it creates it’s own index of frequently viewed pages on popular websites. When you visit a popular website, it will start caching the most popular pages on that website onto your computer in the background. That way, in the likely event that you visit some of the most popular pages of the website, you’re viewing it from your own hard drive – it doesn’t get any faster than that.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, so why in the HECK is Google doing this for FREE? Well, it’s so they can monitor browsing habits and continue to enhance their ever-perfect search indexes and sell advertising.
Who cares? Live a little. Let Google see your browsing habits and browse the net at Warp-google.
Works with MSIE 5.5+ and Firefox 1.0+. Mac users, you’re SOL.
