Sloppy, the slow proxy, deliberately slows the transfer of data between your computer and a web server.
Why would you want to take your nice fast DSL line and slow it down to the speed of a 28.8k modem? Simulation.
If you’re like me, you probably build web sites via a CableModem, DSL or perhaps even a T1 line. Using Sloppy is one way to get the “dial-up experience” of your work without the hassle of having to install a modem.
Perhaps if more of us used tools like this, we’d have less sites with bloated graphics.
