Masqed Crusader a Network Optimization Tool for Root Users

Haven’t picked up a 4G phone yet?  Rooted?  Still looking to get more browsing speed out of your phone?  Masqued Crusader may just be what you looking for!  With one single tap, ads will be blocked and Google DNS will be used.  When you  “Start the Crusader”,  it will block all ads as you browse, as well as incorporate Google’s fast DNS servers, ignoring the DNS defaults of your current connection.  Your recent DNS lookups are cached using Dnsmasq, thereby quickly loading the pages you have already visited.

Your privacy is also increased due to not using your wireless carrier’s DNS servers.

A couple of things need to be done first before this can be used.

1. Your phone has to be rooted

2. Busybox needs to be installed (Comes with many rooting methods and custom ROM’s.  Open Terminal Emulator to check)

There is a trial version available in the market as well as the full version for all Android rooted phones for a mere $4.99
