Full speed download on Firefox

(* try this at your own risk)

I just read on a forum that this can really boost Firefox’s speed for broadband users. Until you enable this tweak, you won?t realize how much bandwidth you?re not utilizing when you?re browsing the web:

1.Type about:config into the address bar and press enter.

2. Now alter these entries as follows (just search for them):

network.http.max-connections: 96
network.http.max-connections-per-server: 48
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy: 24
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server: 12
network.http.pipelining: true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests: 64
network.http.proxy.pipelining: true

3. Right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set its value to 0 (zero). This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it recieves.

You have to close your browser after you make the changes. When you start it back up they will be in effect.

If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages MUCH faster now!
