Launching MegaSPEED Web Accelerator
To launch the MegaSPEED Web Accelerator, locate the application
icon in your dock at the bottom of the screen or in your Applications
directory. You can
typically access the Applications directory by clicking the finder icon
in your Dock, select your Hard Drive, and then select the Applications
folder. After locating the MegaSPEED Web Accelerator icon, we
recommend that you drag and drop that icon into the Dock. This
will allow you to easily access this program in the future.
Changing the Image Quality Setting
The image quality setting changes the appearance of images that appear
in your web browser. The higher the quality you select, the longer it
will take the image to load. For slower Internet connections, it is
recommended that you lower your image quality. This slider can be
adjusted anytime while browsing.
To adjust the image quality, slide the bar located on the "Images" tab
of the Accelerator program. The two sample images on that screen will
change to show you how images on websites will look at the current
acceleration level. When you are done adjusting the image quality
setting, click the Apply button to save your changes.
