AdKiller removes ads from web pages in order to speed up your browsing. It does this by acting as a proxy server, replacing ads with a transparent image as pages are downloaded. This speeds up your browsing because ad images are never downloaded.|
Only the actual content of the page is downloaded. Ads are frequently downloaded from a separate address than the one that you are looking at. This means that your computer must look up extra addresses, make the connections and download these annoying ads. With AdKiller, this extra work is eliminated.
