    For all of you firefox lovers here's a good way to speed up ur firefox.

    in the Address bar type

    about:config (hit enter)

    You will see a whole load of options (reminds me of Regedit) Change the following values as stated:

    network.http.max-connections = 64
    network.http.max-connections-per-server= 20
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server= 10
    network.http.pipelining = true
    network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 100 or 200 (choose one)
    nglayout.initialpaint.delay = 0
    network.http.request.max-start-delay = 0

    If nglayout.initialpaint.delay doesnt exist, Right click, new integer.

    Optional:
    network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy = 10
    network.http.proxy.pipelining = true
    network.http.proxy.version = 1.0

    Close mozilla and start it again.
    Now Mozilla Burns sites like wild.

    Does it make much difference and are there any negative effects?

    I knew of some of the ones he posted, but he added some more tweaks.
    And yes, noticed a huge difference.

    Yep, there are tons of tweaks to be done. I played with the numbers a lot and it really makes browsing a lot faster.

    All up in your interwebsnet.
    Just read an article on how Firefox's default settings actually cause it to be slower than IE and Opera in showing pages. Maybe by tweaking these it will end up back at the top where it deserves to be.

    I found the opposite. Up until about 0.9, it was featureless compared to Mozilla. Now it's very nice.
