Startup Doubler 2.6.2, the latest version of the utility designed to make your Mac start up quicker, is now available for downloading from
Marc Moini Software. It’s a maintenance release that adds support for Mac OS 9.2.2.
Designed to provide quicker startups for your Mac, the utility’s software acceleration compensates for sub-optimal disk performance to make extensions, control panels, the Finder and startup applications load by an estimated 10 to 50 percent faster. It’s most useful for pre-G4 Macs, as fast disks in new high-end Macs can’t be accelerated much. However, the free trial offer lets you find out what effect Startup Doubler can have on your exact setup.
Startup Doubler runs on Mac OS 7.0 through 9.2.2. You may download and try it for 15 days free. Registration for a single user license is $20. The 2.6.2 update is free to registered users.
