I have a macbook pro and I use SSH tunneling using terminal to bypass proxy. It is been a while that my browsing speed is so slow that showing google's homepage takes up to 10 secs. I wanted to know how I can fix this issue. Thanx.

Are you in an environment where you are not an admin (i.e. at work)? When you're not tunneling is your internet fast? If so, there may be a bandwidth limit on SSH ports for that internet connection.

If you are trying to access a fast connection via tunnel using a slow connection, it's no use -- that'd be like drinking from a small straw, then connecting a big straw to the end in the glass and expecting to be able to drink faster.

If you can be more specific I might be able to give a solution, but as it is now, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot you can do.
