FireFox – How to surf at speeds unkown to you!

Don’t worry; this loophole isn’t too nerdy, too technical or too hard for the average person. Assuming you use Firefox for your browser, follow the simple steps detailed below and you will be surfing the web much faster than before.

  • Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return
  • Scroll down and look for the following entries and alter appropriately

    • Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
    • Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
    • Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to a number like 30 — Firefox will now make 30 requests at once whereas before it would only make one request at a time

  • Lastly right-click anywhere and select New -> Integer

    • Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0” (time the browser waits before it acts on information received)

Thank me and them later. Happy speed surfing.
