Fire Fox - Improve Internet Browsing

A while ago I upgraded my Internet browser to Mozilla Firefox. Its better than what I had before, and I recommend it to others. With Firefox you can read blogs without some of the problems which one faces with other Internet browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer).

Advantages of using Firefox for your Internet browser:
  • You can read blogs easier.
  • You can view webpages faster.
  • You can open links in different tabs all in one window.
  • You can get loads of different skins and themes for it.
  • It understands all new things about style sheets and other webdesigning features.
  • It has integrated search.
  • And more...

Get Firefox!

speed up Mozilla considerably using a few simple commands:

1.Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:
network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
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’ll load pages MUCH faster now!
