Browse Faster With FireFox

Wednesday, September 06, 2006


Have you lately started using Firefox...If not I suggest you to get and you will really enjoy with the ease of use and loads of customization available..

If you are using broadband connection and using Firefox then follow the simple steps provided below to make your Firefox work faster for you:
The catch here is by enabling pipelining in Firefox you can tell your browser to make several request at the same time, which means the site will load faster.

1.Type "about:config" into the address bar and press Enter. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

- network.http.pipelining
- network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
- network.http.proxy.pipelining

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"
Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"
You can do so by double clicking on the row where the tags are present, so it will change to true/false alternately.
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 have any doubts submit in the comments section.....Enjoy browsing at a faster speed.
