Journal: Google Web Accelerator

Journal by HD Webdev
Don't use the Google Web Accelerator if you block advertisements with software and/or a hosts file.

Their accelerator will bypass software advertisement blocking programs and hosts files set up to block advertising. Google should have mentioned this on the Accelerator Help/Support page.

They did not do so and couldn't have missed this side effect of their accelerator.

I'm very disappointed in Google for doing this sort of thing.

If an experiment works, something has gone wrong.
