I admit to never being an IE browser fan. In fact, back in the day, I used Netscape. Well that is until Netscape 7 began to slow down and lose the browser war against IE
Is history repeating itself now with Firefox. Everyone is currently complaining about how slow Firefox has become.
RESULT: Firefox is now running slow…Just like the old Netscape.
HELP HAS ARRIVED and it REALLY WORKS:
3 steps listed below to make your Firefox FASTER…
Here’s 3 easy steps for broadband people that will really speed Firefox up:
1. Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return (where it says http://). 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 receives.
