RabbIT is a web proxy which speeds up surfing over slow links like modems. It does this by compressing text pages to gzip streams (reduces size up to 75%), compressing images to 10% jpeg (reduces size up to 95%), removing advertising and background images, caching the filtered pages and images, and using keepalive if possible. It is almost completely HTTP/1.1 compliant.
