How to Speed up Firefox3, a Quick Tip

No doubt Firefox 3 is the fastest browser at present. But since its open source there is always a room for improvement. Here’s a small tip which will help you to speed up Firefox3, follow the below instructions carefully:

1. Type “about:config” (without quotes) into the address bar and hit enter. You will get a warning message saying “changing these settings can be harmful to the stability, security and performance”. Just below the message click on the button “I’ll be careful, I promise”

2. Now, scroll down and look for the following entries:
network.http.pipelining
network.http.proxy.pipelining
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

You need to alter the above 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. Once done 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.
