RabbIT is a web proxy designed to speed up surfing over slow links. It acomplishes this by removing unwanted content, compression and real time image conversion. RabbIT is a web proxy that speeds up web surfing over slow links by doing:
1. Compress text pages to gzip streams. This reduces size by up to 75%
2. Compress images to 10% jpeg. This reduces size by up to 95%
3. Remove advertising
4. Remove background images
5. Cache filtered pages and images
6. Uses keepalive if possible
7. Easy and powerful configuration
8. Multi threaded solution written in java
9. Modular and easily extended
10. Complete HTTP/1.1 compliance

RabbIT is developed and tested under Linux. Since the whole package is written in java, the basic proxy should run on any plattform that supports java.

RabbIT works best if it is run on a computer with a fast link (typically your ISP). Since every large image is compressed before it is sent from the ISP to you, surfing becomes much faster at the price of some decrease in image quality. If some parts of the page are already cached by the proxy, the speedup will often be quite amazing. For 1275 random images only 22% (2974108 bytes out of a total of 13402112) were sent to the client. That is 17 minutes instead of 75 using 28.8 modem.

RabbIT works by modifying the pages you visit so that your browser never sees the advertising images, it only sees one fixed image tag (that image is cached in the browser the first time it is downloaded, so sequential requests for it is made from the browsers cache, giving a nice speedup). For images RabbIT fetches the image and run it through a processor giving a low quality jpeg instead of the animated gif-image. This image is very much smaller and download of it should be quick even over a slow link (modem).

Please Note: need java under Windows.
