MoreGoogle Performance Improvement

One neat thing about MoreGoogle is that it doesn't require software updates. The part that's installed on the PC (a DLL) is only 30k small, the rest are scripts. Those scripts are downloaded from the MoreGoogle server, so whenever there's an update, it's automatically available to everyone without installing new software.

There's a small disadvantage, though: Internet Explorer automatically checks for MoreGoogle script updates, which generates quite some traffic on the MoreGoogle web server and might slow down the browser.

To overcome that, I've now optimized MoreGoogle to take advantage of web caches. Internet Explorer and proxy servers will now cache the MoreGoogle scripts and only check for updates from time to time.

This sounds like a neat program but I like my google toolbar. Can I still use that with MoreGoogle or is it in place of/instead of that? Thanks

Another issue that I ran across is that MoreGoogle only works for my installation of Internet Explorer, not my other IE-based browsers.

I run Crazyrowser v1.0.5 (www.crazybrowser.com) and love its features... so it would be cool to see MoreGoogle working with other browser add-ons.

Hi... looks nice. Just got a link from Good Morning Silicon Valley (siliconvalley.com) to your software. It's a good idea! One problem is the missing Mozilla support.

Thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately, I'm afraid don't have the time at the moment to add support for other browsers, but it's definitely the top wishlist item :)

Regarding MoreGoogle and the Google Toolbar: no problem at all, they work very well side by side!

You can install the lastest ver of LostGoogle (ver 1.5). It can work in IE-based browsers (such as Maxthon)
