    Default How to make firefox even faster - updated

    Make firefox even faster!


    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 brodband connection you'll load pages 2-3 times faster now.

    Return = Enter (Or the big button with the arrow on it)

    er..are you sure its safe to tweak the default browser setting?
    there must be a reason why they had it like that right?....
