Firefox is already pretty damn fast but do you know that you can tweak it to max and improve the speed even more high?
That’s the greatness of this program being open source.Here we go..just follow me
Go to the URL bar, type “about:config” and press enter.This will bring up the configuration “menu” where you can change the parameters of Firefox.
Double Click on the following settings and put in the numbers below – for the true / false booleans – they’ll change when you double click.
browser.tabs.showSingleWindowModePrefs – true
network.http.max-connections – 48
network.http.max-connections-per-server – 16
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy – 8
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server – 4
network.http.pipelining – true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests – 100
network.http.proxy.pipelining – true
network.http.request.timeout – 300
One more thing… Right-click somewhere on that screen and add a 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. Since you’re broadband – it shouldn’t have to wait.
Now you should notice you’re loading pages MUCH faster now!
