Lightbulb Speed up Firefox

Speed up Firefox, after this tweak you can serf much faster.

How To

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.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 “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 receives.If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages MUCH faster now!

Note: This only works if you have Firefox installed on your computer.
