NetSpeeder is a useful tool that can help improve your Internet connection speed, and thus have a pleasant browsing experience.
The program allows you to test your connection's speed and to fine-tune the settings in order to reach higher performance.
If you do not know everything there is to know about networking you have the option to access the Tweak Wizard that lets you choose the type of connection and configuration settings that need to be modified. For each connection the program makes available three options (strategies) without giving too many details about the actions that are being taken.
For those who do not see the improvement after applying one of the acceleration strategies the user has the option of restoring the Windows default settings. However, these modifications require a system restart so be sure to save all documents before performing any modification.
You can also change the settings manually in the Fine Tune tab, if you know a few things about TCP/IP settings such as MTU or receive window size. The program features a DNS accelerator that speeds up browsing by converting the textual links into numerical IP addresses. This tool automatically processes all the links from the browser's favorites and can also process the ones in the history.
Another function included in the application is URL simplification (URL keywords). This allows you to associate a word such as "soft" with an Internet address like www.softpedia.com.
The program parses the IP address and the next time you put "soft" in the address bar the browser knows what page to load up. To enable this function you will need to disable the "Search from the address bar" option that some browsers have.
The program has a few extra tools that allow you to view information about the LAN settings, to ping an IP address and to monitor a TCP/UDP port. These may come in handy to advanced users and are available in the Net Viewer tab.
Some programs can interfere with NetSpeeder's optimization tools and in order to avoid this the app provides an Immunity tab that shows the list of troublemakers.
If programs in the list are installed on your computer, you can "immunize" NetSpeeder with just one click.
Overall, this application lets you browse the Internet faster and can be used with the same ease by beginners and networking specialists.
