Startup Doubler makes for quicker startups: Its software acceleration
compensates for sub-optimal disk performance to make extensions, control
panel, the Finder and startup applications load faster.

Save time each time you startup your Mac! Those seconds spent waiting while
your Mac starts add up to a lot of time. Startup Doubler usually makes
startups 20% to 50% faster, depending on the performance of your startup
disk and the number of Extensions, Control Panels and Startup Items in your

Version 2.1, released today, fixes an obscure crash bug during startup and
has other minor improvements.

Startup Doubler runs on Mac OS 8.6 and previous versions (going back to
System 7.0), and supports multiple extension sets. It is shareware, so you
can try it for free then buy only if you like it. The shareware fee is $20,
registered users of previous versions may upgrade for free.
