Speed up up your FireFox

    Basically after getting to the hidden config settings you set the browser to request more data that it usually does.

    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 80. This means it will make 80 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!

    Nice one steerser. Perhaps you could do a post on what firefox is and why it is beneficial for people to use it instead of IE.
