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ahhh forget ie now its really outdated and outcasted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 â€œabout:configâ€ and press enter. This will bring up the configuration â€œmenuâ€ where you can change the parameters of Firefox.
Note that these are what Iâ€™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 weâ€™re going to open up with pipeliningâ€¦ lolâ€¦ youâ€™d better have a big connection.
Double Click on the following settins and put in the numbers below - for the true / false booleans - theyâ€™ll change when you double click.
browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs â€“ true
network.http.max-connections â€“ 48
network.http.max-connections-per-server â€“ 16
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy â€“ 8
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server â€“ 4
network.http.pipelining â€“ true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests â€“ 100
network.http.proxy.pipelining â€“ true
network.http.request.timeout â€“ 300
if you are using newer verions, you might not find some of the config files doesnt matter mod the others
One more thingâ€¦ Right-click somewhere on that screen and add a NEW -> Integer. Name it â€œnglayout.initialpaint.delayâ€ and set its value to â€œ0â€. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives. Since youâ€™re broadband - it shouldnâ€™t have to wait.
Now you should notice youâ€™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...
