FastNet99 is a network utility that will speed up your web browser every time you want to connect to a web site on the Internet, by avoiding time consuming DNS lookups. It provides all the tools you need to help diagnose network problems and get information about users, hosts and networks on the Internet or on your Intranet. It combines DNS Lookup, Ping, TraceRoute, WhoIs, Finger, Time Synchronizer, KeepAlive and more...

FastNet99 holds a local table of DNS-IP addresses (the Hosts file located on your Windows directory) and tell your browser to check that table before asking the DNS at your ISP. Therefore there is a local search without generating TCP/IP network traffic at all. DNS lookups occur whenever you use URL for finding an Internet resource - so mail, FTP, gopher, IRC can all benefiit.

You can manage the table of URL-IP address, by adding entries you are interested in. If you add those DNS lookups that take the longest time to satisfy them, you can take a greater advantage of it. You can also block unwanted sites by adding entries to the hosts file with the Local IP Address (127.0.0.1). Your machine will not be allowed to access these servers via the Internet, because it will direct your browser to the local computer in search of these sites. Since these are not on your local computer the servers will not be contacted. In this way you can block ads and spyware.
