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

Firefox Browser

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.

If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages MUCH faster now!
