How to speed up Mozilla Firefox by 400%


If you aren’t already using Mozilla’s Firefox browser, drop everything immediately and make the switch. We could start listing all the reasons why it’s a superior web browser - pop-up blocking, tabs, enhanced security, the plethora of custom extensions - but then we’d melt into a heap of gushy software rapture. And that would be a little creepy. Even for us.

If you’re already using Firefox on a broadband connection, here’s some tweaking you can do to make your browsing even faster.

* 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.maxrequests


Normally 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 recieves.

I heard that can make it look like you're Denial of Service attacking a site.

But when you're sending tons of requests at once, a site might think you're trying to use up all their bandwidth and automatically block your IP. Forums and such.

No amount of hacking will let you get speeds beyond those capable of the web server or your own net connection. And since web pages are relatively small, they usually are allow the highest-priority speeds to a user (giving higher speeds to one user is less costly than having multiple connections to several users).
