    Hi Guys,

    I've mentioned this before, seems to get very little attention, but seeing as how this is positively mentioned in 'MaximumPC' i shall post again.

    Download & install, it really made a difference for me, & the little clock is cool.

    Take Care
    Rico

    Yeah I have this as a convenient way of putting in settings using the custom preset.
    Some sites will block you if your using the Turbo setting.
    Also has a popup blocker to 'disable popups from plugins.'

    Fasterfox is ok, on dialup every little bit helps :D

    They made it very easy, make the cd, then follow the graphical wizard.
    All the benefits of usb, also fast, secure and silent.

    All step-by-step instructions + help on installing extra programs, very nice work.

    The only hacks I know are for DSL. Maybe something in the Fasterfox archives. Try a google or trial and error. You can always go back by selecting default.
