Default Speed up FireFox

Found this little gem for all you FF users.

Type “about:config” in the address bar and press ENTER key.

Scroll down and look for the entries below and alter entries as follows:

1. Set “network.http.pipelining” To “true”
2. Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” To “true”
3. Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to any number say 25. This settings decides how many concurrent requests/connections the browser can make to a server, Please keep in mind that using a high value can trigger flood control limits on some servers and you can be denied access to the website.
4.
5. Right-click and select New-> Integer. Name the new value “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set value to “0?. This value decides the amount of time the firefox waits before it acts on information it receives and displays it.


it really works, i've noticed.

My pages open up really fast, so i'll pass on this for now, but I HAVE heard of this before. There was one catch, and I believe it was exactly what you mentioned Ronco...some sites will deny you. Oh noes
