Getting to the Accelerator options

The Graphics tab allows you to specify how aggressively the Sonic.net Accelerator will speed up your connection. Some reduction in the quality of images will result from any setting above "low." Here you can also instruct the Accelerator to block banner ads and other in-page advertisements.

Pop-up Windows

The Sonic.net Accelerator can block annoying pop-up windows. You can enable or disable this functionality under the Pop-up Windows tab. You can also specify sites that you wish to allow pop-ups from.

Temporary Files

Under the Temporary Files tab, you can configure how much disk space the Accelerator will use to store temporary files. The use of temporary files stored locally on your computer is part of how the Accelerator streamlines your web-surfing experience. You can also clear out old files by clicking the button labeled "Delete Files..."

The Advanced options allow you to specify how often it reports on its efficiency, which port it operates on, whether to automatically launch on startup, and whether the Accelerator should try to trump other proxy connections you may have.
