If you have broadband and Firefox, this might come in handy.

QUOTE
The following should speed up Firefox performance on broadband.

In the URL bar type "about:config". This will bring up a list of commands and variables you can edit. Then type "network.http.pipelining" in the filter and change the value to "true".

After that type "network.http.proxy.pipelining" in the filter, similarly setting this value to "true" as well.

Next locate "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" and change the value to "30." This should now make 30 requests at once instead of 1 for all the files in a page. This speeds up browsing tenfold! ( Edit this according to your connection speed. For 384k I use 30, so set yours accordingly.)

Lastly right click anywhere and select "New" then "Integer". Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set it's value to "0". This will make the browser respond faster to the data required to load the page. "


It makes a huge difference for me.

Thank you, 744. It seems more efficient already. Of course I will see more of this as I do more with the browser.

This really seems like something that should be pinned, if it does infact work as well as it sounds. icon_razz.gif

The better browser Opera, eh? Well, that would be one kind of opinion. My Firefox runs with lightning speed now, which I say without doubt, after using it enough to draw an accurate conclusion.

It's quite possible that Opera has the same options. Look around, you might find them. If you do, post them :].

[edit] By "It's quite possible that Opera has the same options," I didn't mean the exact same addresses and URLs. Just, options that do the same or similar things... just incase there was to be any confusion >.>

The only way Opera could be better is if it were Firefox. (Or Safari.)

I've looked for an Opera method but haven't found anything yet.

I believe Opera sets this by itself, so there's nothing you have to do with Opera to get it's fastest speed. icon_shrug.gif

It feels much faster than before. Wow.... Say, would dial-up people benefit from this?

I don't know. If you have dial-up, you can try it, but I dunno if anything will happen.
