      trickle works by taking advantage of the unix loader preloading. Essentially it provides, to the application, a new version of the functionality that is required to send and receive data through sockets.

      Wonder Shaper vs NetLimiter opinions
      Some users think Wonder Shaper is a great alternative to NetLimiter, some don't.
