Speed up your browsing with Adguard Web Filter

The internet is said to be the next great operating system. With so many different web based applications available – Gmail, Office 365 and the like – keeping unneeded and unwanted ads out of the way isn’t easy. This is one of the reasons why I like Adguard Web Filter. It’s a Windows based internet tool.

Adguard Web Filter helps you remove online ads from the web pages your view.  Online ads always slow down the loading of web pages you need and may open ones you don’t. The biggest problem is when indecent ads damage your reputation at work or affect the wellbeing of your children.  Web ads are widely used for fraud, circulation of viruses and other types of malware. Ads often distort the appearance of web pages.

Adguard Web Filter removes these annoying ads, reduces the page loading time and saves your traffic. It works with all major browser, including Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. Adguard Web Filter blocks video ads, rich media and other non-standard types of ads, as well as standard ads. It prevents counters and tracking by ad networks. Adguard starts working right after installation, requires no additional configuration and is regularly updated.

Adguard Web Filter is an app that nearly everyone can benefit from. The app installs quickly and easily and the benefits are seen immediately. The removal of online ads is something that you don’t necessarily think about when the ads are gone, but immediately comes to mind when they blink and flash in front of you when they are left unchecked. Available at no charge, the application is something everyone should use to improve their browsing experience on their Windows PC.

NetBalancer gives your the proper priority to your internet activities

Even in today’s world of high speed internet and wide pipes, prioritizing and monitoring what takes up the bulk of that personal bandwidth can be important.  If you have large files that you need to transfer quickly then pulling back incidental network traffic can be important. If you have small things that you’d rather move in front of that large file transfer, throttling the large transfer in favor of the low hanging fruit may provide the win.  That’s why I like NetBalancer. It’s a network utility for Windows.

NetBalancer allows you to browse and complete any internet activity easily, even when transferring huge files from one end point to another.  All you need to do is lower their network priority with NetBalancer. You can use NetBalancer to set network transfer rate priorities for any application, and monitor that traffic.

Applications with a higher network priority will gain more traffic bandwidth than those with a lower one. You can set download and upload speed limits for a process. You can manage priorities and limits for each network adaptor (wired vs. wireLESS, for example).  In short, you can define detailed network traffic rules.  You can group local network computers together, and synchronize and balance their network traffic.

The app provides a volume of information, including a system tray monitor and graphical representation of both traffic coming in and out of your adapters. While the free version is limited, the paid version is reasonably priced and depending on the amount of bandwidth you consume every month, may be well worth the purchase price.

Today is the day when the Internet goes on strike against SOPA

January 18th – A day we’ll remember. Thousands of sites went dark to protest against SOPA and PIPA, two US bills racing through Congress that threaten prosperity, online security, and freedom of expression. Sites are striking in all different ways, for example, Google censored its own logo and Wikipedia decided to bring out drastic measures in the fight, as they make the website unavailable for 24 hours in protest against the bill.

One thing is clear, if the bill will pass, the Internet will never be the same and it will affect everyone around the world, not only the people of US, by blocking site’s web traffic, ad traffic and search traffic using the same website censorship methods used by China, Iran and Syria. All websites both inside and outside the US could be blocked based on an infringement claim and website based on user-generated content like YouTube and Reddit could be really effected.

By clicking Google’s logo or the link just under the logo takes you to a SOPA / PIPA landing page that displays these words:

Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.

Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.

The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel. Sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late.

The page gives you the option to sign a petition against the legislation, and I hope you will!

You can also declare your opposition to it via a PIPA petition website

NetworkMiner seeks hidden traffic

NetworkMiner is a Network Forensic Analysis Tool (NFAT) for Windows. NetworkMiner can be used as a passive network sniffer/packet capturing tool in order to detect operating systems, sessions, hostnames, open ports etc. without putting any traffic on the network. NetworkMiner can also parse PCAP files for off-line analysis and to regenerate/reassemble transmitted files and certificates from PCAP files.

The purpose of NetworkMiner is to collect data (such as forensic evidence) about hosts on the network rather than to collect data regarding the traffic on the network. The main view is host centric (information grouped per host) rather than packet centric (information showed as a list of packets/frames).

NetworkMiner has, since the first release in 2007, become popular tool among incident responce teams as well as law enforcement. NetworkMiner is today used by companies and organizations all over the world.

The professional edition comes installed on a specially designed USB flash drive. You can run NetworkMiner directly from the USB flash drive since NetworkMiner is a portable application that doesn’t require any installation. It is recommended that you copy NetworkMiner to the local hard drive of your computer in order to achieve maximum performance.
