Something for broadband users that will speed up Firefox :D:

1) Type about:config into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2) Alter the entries as follows:

Set network.http.pipelining to true

Set network.http.proxy.pipelining to true

Set network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3) Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to 0 . This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!

You have to close your browser after you make the changes. When you start it back up they will be in effect.

There you have it, faster web browsing. :naughty:

Referring to something as the "thing" it cant be all that great...

How about posting a link instead of being funny about it?

Indeed I am sonny, indeed I am.... :)

Wait a minute, you actually have to download something to modify FireFox's settings, when you can do it yourself?

Seeing as the forums for FireTune is currently unavailable, I cant say its doing to well...

The settings I provided in the first post is practically what FireTune changes. To be honest, I'd rather change them myself. :D

Ok, well the average person wouldn't and downloading something, you make it sound like its a challenge. 50Kb is hardly big!
