Launching MegaSPEED Web AcceleratorTo launch the MegaSPEED Web Accelerator simply locate the application icon 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 it is recommended 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 SettingThe image quality setting changes the quality of images that appear in your MegaSPEED Web Accelerator. 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 simply 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 bottom to save your changes.
Starting, Stoping, and Closing the AcceleratorOccasionally, you may need to stop or start the Accelerator manually.
