OK, so, me and a friend were on AIM and messing around with Firefox's commands and we discovered something to make pages go lightning fast. I have no idea if other people discovered this but whatever! It's rather simple, here are the instructions:
A. Download Firefox.
1.Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return.
Scroll down and look for the following entries:
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 will load pages MUCH faster now!
Okay, now, I believe there is a side effect of this that cannot be proved for sure, but, I suspect it to be true. Using it costs more bandwidth for the website you are going to depending on the higher number you put into the integer of "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests". For this reason I have only tested it out and have not decided to use it. But, if you want to try it out or use it regardless, go ahead. I just thought it's quite interesting. It is a HUGE improvement on the speed of the internet. If you want faster internet, but don't want to burn peoples bandwidth too much, then you can keep the maxrequests number down. But, I have chosen just to keep it off entirely. My internet is fast enough. This is helpful for people with Firefox and broadband but slow computers I would suppose.
