Propel Accelerator (Issue 1061)


Welcome to the new Propel Accelerator 6.0. Propel Accelerator 6.0 has many enhancements over previous versions. Enhancements include:

  • Dramatic compression improvements - As a result of Propel's significant ongoing R&D investments in compression technology, preliminary results for typical mixes of HTML, XML, GIF, JPG, Flash, and other popular content types indicate that Propel 6.0 delivers compression rates 1.2 to 3 times higher than Propel's closest competitor, while maintaining comparable image quality levels. For end users, this will result in correspondingly faster page loads.

  • Dynamic Imaging - Propel Accelerator 6.0 delivers fully usable Web pages to end users in dramatically less time, without requiring users to settle for tradeoffs between image quality and page load speeds. With Dynamic Imaging, pages initially appear with lower quality preview images, allowing users to navigate through pages as quickly as possible. Image quality then improves automatically and dynamically in the background whenever a user pauses to view the contents of a page. Propel's industry leading image compression technology allows both preview and incremental image data to be downloaded in the shortest amount of time with the least amount of network overhead.
