Review

Network Booster is designed to increase the speed at which you browse the Internet. In this sense, the tool is based on providing a more adequate DNS configuration for your system, based on the different response speeds of the available servers. Despite the obvious complexity of the DNS server selection process, the application is not at all difficult to use. What's more, it can be used by any type of user, regardless of their computer experience.

Network Booster's interface is based on a wizard, which guides you through very simple steps. Thus, depending on your interests, you can choose between the two available scan types: Quick and Full. As their names suggest, they differ in the time needed and the depth of the scan. Once the scan type is selected, the application automatically starts scanning the network for available DNS servers, while recording and comparing their lookup times for different sites and browsers. On this basis, it suggests variants that can positively impact your browsing speed. Unfortunately for advanced users who prefer to stay in control, the application does not allow you to choose from multiple recommendations.

It is good that Network Booster supports a long list of public DNS servers. It is also convenient that it is compatible with such popular browsers as Safari, Chrome and Opera. If you are concerned about the privacy of your data, you will be relieved with the promise that it will not be transmitted in any way, as it only uses very general-purpose sites to perform the scan. In addition, the recommended DNS servers are all well-known and reliable.

In general, Network Booster recommends the most appropriate DNS servers for your browsing conditions. In this way, it manages to have a positive impact on the response speeds of the sites you visit most frequently. The application is very lightweight and is available on the Mac App Store.
