Web Accelerators (Google) Question

    OK,

    As you can see I'm having problems with my internet connection.

    Google Accelerator basically provides a massive proxy service, which
    gets around the DNS problems, but I'm interested to know if anyone has
    used it and found it useful.

    Also, if all web requests are sent to the proxy server, as opposed via
    your ISP, does that mean the local ISP is only seeing (& logging)
    requests to that proxy server?

    SO it definitely means that Google gets to look at your entire
    browsing history, but your ISP just sees the proxy servers?

    Thanks, sorry if it's confusing.
