Google puts the brakes on Accelerator
Google has stopped allowing downloads of its Accelerator software, just days after it began offering the product.
Google cited capacity as the reason for putting the brake on downloads of the software, which is designed to speed the delivery of Web pages. A message on the site said the company has reached its "maximum capacity of users and (we) are actively working to increase the number of users we can support".
The software was launched on 4 May but within a day was causing concern among users when it transpired that the software cached more data than many people felt comfortable with, enabling individuals in some cases to log into secure online pages of others.
