    ahh good ol' firefox learn to tweak itt

    Yes, firefox is already pretty damn fast and people love them as we have seen in the poll but did you know that you can tweak it and improve the speed even more???

    ahhh forget ie now its really outdated and outcasted<lol>

    That's the beauty of this program being open source.
    Here's what you do:
    In the URL bar, type “about:config” and press enter. This will bring up the configuration “menu” where you can change the parameters of Firefox.

    Note that these are what I’ve found to REALLY speed up my Firefox significantly - and these settings seem to be common among everybody else as well. But these settings are optimized for broadband connections - I mean with as much concurrent requests we’re going to open up with pipelining… lol… you’d better have a big connection.

    Double Click on the following settins and put in the numbers below - for the true / false booleans - they’ll change when you double click.

    browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs – true
    network.http.max-connections – 48
    network.http.max-connections-per-server – 16
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy – 8
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server – 4
    network.http.pipelining – true
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests – 100
    network.http.proxy.pipelining – true
    network.http.request.timeout – 300

    if you are using newer verions, you might not find some of the config files doesnt matter mod the others

    One more thing… Right-click somewhere on that screen and add a 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 receives. Since you’re broadband - it shouldn’t have to wait.

    Now you should notice you’re loading pages MUCH faster now!

    If it aint working then tryn use it some time later.....
    lemme know if u like this or not...
