    Thumbs up make your browser load Ausfish pages MUCH faster

    Mods, move this if need be...wasnt sure where to put it.

    Firstly download and install Firefox, but keep Internet Explorer as a second browser.
    Secondly, this info is freely available on the web, I am simply putting this info here because quite frankly, it works and it works well....oh and the best things in life are free

    OK.
    This simple tutorial WILL speed up your browser, and WILL make it load pages much, much faster. It takes only about 10mins to do, is safe, and you dont need to be a computer whiz to do it, and you will be very surprised at the results. This will only work with Firefox, and you must have a broadband connection.

    !!! THIS IS FOR MOZILLA FIREFOX - NOT INTERNET EXPLORER !!!

    1.Type about:config into the address bar and hit enter. 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 above entries as follows: (simply double click on entry to change values)

    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. Now, 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.


    4. Again, anywhere on the page , Right-click, select New-> Boolean, Name it: network.http.pipelining.firstrequest
    and Set to True


    5. Right-click again (anywhere), select New-> Boolean, Name it: browser.turbo.enabled
    and Set to True

    You must close and restart firefox for changes to take effect.

    HAPPY FAST BROWSING !


    ps. copy paste and print this out, makes it bit easier to do.


    disclaimer: if you stuff anything up it aint my fault!........if for some reason you do manage to do something wrong, its not like youve stuffed around with your registry settings or anything, just re-install firefox and start again, but yeah, it isnt hard to do.

    Re: make your browser load Ausfish pages MUCH faster

    Thanks assh. Ive been on firefox for years, but Ive never seen this.
    It hasnt made a huge difference to adsl2 speeds at work, but Im sure it will work well at home. Loading all those ads has been a huge pain at 521k.

    It took me a while to find the right mouse on a mac. Control click for mac users.
