Increase your Browsing Speed in Firefox

. Thursday, June 25, 2009

Do you like to browse a lot?
I do.

Hope you are not pulling your hair because of slow speed.

I hate slow net speed as much as you do. I open a minimum of 6 tabs in my browser. I really hate it when I get very low speed. But the fact is that it has helped me to come up with this setting.

How does this work?

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. Enabling pipelining will make several request to the server at one time, which really speeds up page loading. Whenever your browser receives some information it waits for some time.

This procedure sets this time to '0'.

Speed up your Firefox browser and load pages faster than earlier:

>>Type 'about:config' into the address bar/url bar and press Enter

>>Scroll down and look for the following entries:

# network.http.pipelining

# network.http.proxy.pipelining

# network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

>>Alter the entries as follows:

# Double click on 'network.http.pipelining' it will change its value to 'true'

# Double click on 'network.http.proxy.pipelining' it will also change its value to 'true'

# Double click on 'network.http.pipelining.maxrequests' it will open a 'Enter integer value' dialog box set some number like '30'

>>Last but the most important step right-click anywhere and create a new 'Integer'

>>Name it 'nglayout.initialpaint.delay'

>>Set the value to '0'

You have done it restart your Fire Fox.

If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages 2-3 times faster now.
