    Firefox 2b more faster

    Greetings...
    This is my first tutorial on how to make the Firefox fast:

    Firefox- changing the settings to make it fast...

    i know how to do it and i did it. i set the number of requests to send to like 30 and seems to be working amazingly. It just takes up bandwith with i have a lot of.

    has anyone else done this with firefox?

    Here's something for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:

    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.

    If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!

    I have been testing it and it seems to load the page instantly, i mean within 1 second! to tell you the truth, i dont see the loading bar anymore!

    If anyone wants to try it and has firefox, give it a go. if you dont notice anything just put it on default settings, but i dont think ill go back anytime soon.

    Hi

    Information about "about:Config" can be found at Mozillazine


    network. http. pipelining Boolean Determines whether to use HTTP/1.1 pipelining.
    [b]True[b]: Enable pipelining
    False (default): Disable pipelining
    Note: Pipelining is not well-supported by some servers and proxies. Things may break — use with caution.

    network. http. proxy. pipelining Boolean Determines whether to use HTTP/1.1 pipelining when a proxy server is configured.
    True: Enable pipelining
    False (default): Disable pipelining
    Note: Pipelining is not well-supported by some servers and proxies. Things may break — use with caution.

    network. http. pipelining. maxrequests Integer Determines the maximum number of HTTP requests in the pipeline (sent sequentially without waiting for a response). Values greater than 8 are assumed to be 8; values less than 1 are assumed to be 1. Default value is 4.

    Blah, old yet useable information.. zencoders idea work's better and (oddly and ironically enough) faster. Regardless, I'll give you an A for effort.

    WHAT EFFORT?

    Previous post #1
    Previous post #2

    Sorry, I just don't see it. Anyone can take a lot of effort to write something up. That doesn't make it a valuable contribution. Notice my # of tutorials written? I haven't put togther enough that I think is worthy. I'm too busy elsewhere. Again...I didn't neg the poster, just the thread itself. At least do some surrounding research on the site, if not the web in general.

    And yet another cut & paste. This time from Here

    FasterFox pwns.! i've found it to be waaaay more quicker then when i manually configure the config file..
    Also it gives you a custom option and you can still make it even a little more quicker..
