Google Web Accelerator

Discovered another new application from google via google labs. This one is a cache server sitting inside your computer to accelerate your browsing experience. It is suppose to be able to cache and and pre fetch pages. I think there might even be contents that will be compressed by google before being downloaded by the accelerator thus saving on bandwidth. However, I feel that google will keep and use the traffic statistics of its user to boost its advert business. Another thing they could do is to insert ads into the pages fetched by the accelerator. Cause, I still don't believe anyone or any company is really that willing to give free services with no gimmicks attached.
