FASTER FIREFOX WEB-BROWSER

Recommended Posts

Heres a little tip that can triple the speed your browser asks for data. Thus increasing your browsing speed by about 280% (You should have Cable or Broadband internet for this). If you have dialup you might actually suffer slower load times then faster ones.1. Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. (If it says you could void your warranty, Just click "I'll Be Careful", It's just firefox anyway and this wont hurt it).Scroll down and look for the following entries:network.http.pipeliningnetwork.http.proxy.pipeliningnetwork.http.pipelining.maxrequestsNormally 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 TRUESet network.http.proxy.pipelining to TRUESet network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to about "30".This means it will make 30 requests at once. (Don't put higher than 30, because some sites will think you are hammering them and they will ban you. (Hammering is like DDoSing)3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New Integer. Name itnglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value toThis value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!Just remember that with Dial-up if you try this, due to the slow speeds on Dial-up requesting 30 connections with a webpage at once will bring your browsing speed to a standstill.Enjoy the speed people. Everything in a page should load instantly now, all at once and almost immediately.ONLY WORKS WITH MOZILLA FIREFOX :l

It won't request 30 connections at once, that's the maximum it will request.It will only do that IF it needs to, e.g you open 30 tabs at once.Theres a extension called fasterfox which does basically the same thing and gives you a nice user interface with a variety of different options.

This does work, but it makes firefox unstable as it's not meant to deal with that many requests.Plus the RAM usage will dead you.
