WebRunner is a program that accelerates your web surfing experience using your existing phone jack, modem and dialup with no additional equipment. It's the best way to maximize your dialup internet service.
Before the text and graphics that make up Web pages are sent to you over your phone line, WebRunner servers will compress the information using a proprietary technology. This information is then extracted and translated by the WebRunner software on your computer. This allows for smaller chunks of data to be sent to your computer making pages load faster, pushing your Internet experience to the maximum! In addition, WebRunner stores elements of the web sites you visit frequently so you do not have to re-download them every time you visit the site, saving you even more time on the page load!
The exact amount of acceleration can vary, but with WebRunner you will notice a significantly faster experience when you visit Web sites, read your email on the Web, and perform many other Web-based activities. With WebRunner pages will load up to 6 times faster than before.
Any Hubris Communications dialup customer who has a computer that meets the minimum system requirements can use WebRunner. The service is for dialup customers only and should not be used with DSL or other high speed services.
There is no additional cost for Hubris Communications dialup customers to use WebRunner.
WebRunner accelerates certain text and graphics on Web pages.
