There are really no limits to the way you can tweak, hack and improve Firefox 3. That’s why I really like it and prefer, without a second thought, to the slower and buggy Microsoft Internet Explorer. Today I want to speak of a little trick which lets you surf faster by loading web-pages quickly. Before start writing the procedure down, I want to remind you that, if you want to surf faster, there is also a trick for Windows Vista which, if combined to this add-on and the trick this post talks about, should give you good results. Here is the article for improving your Internet experience in Vista. Ok, back on track with this post. Here is the procedure to follow to download websites faster in Firefox.
- Type about:config in the Address bar and press Enter.
- A message followed by a button saying “I’ll be carefull. I promise!” should appear. Click on it.
- Type network.http.pipelining and network.http.proxy.pipelining in the Filter field.
- Under the Filter field the preferences should appear . Click on them and set them to true
- Type network.http.pipelining.maxrequests in the Filter field. Under the Filter field the preference should appear. Click on it and set the value to 10 or to whatever value to wish (anyway no more than 30). This means it will make 10 requests at once to the responding server.
- At this point right-click anywhere on the Firefox blank window and select New followed by Integer . Set the value to 0. This value determines the time that the browser waits before it acts on the information it gets.
