THREE STEPS TO MAKE FIREFOX FASTER

Mozilla Firefox 3 e tre FirefoxImage by Mackley ☯ via Flickr



Like millions of internet users, i am also an ardent fan of Firefox.Without Firefox and it's several add-ons, browsing through different internet sites and blogs would not have been this great, an experience.One thing that often perturbs me is the slowness of this browser to load pages.For several weeks i was in search for ways to speed-up Firefox.

1.A few days back, i got hold of Fasterfox,which is an extension that allows us to make changes to pipelines,DNS,cache,initial paint delay.It also has a built-in timer and a pop-up blocker.

2.Two sites that provide a detailed explanation of the changes,that are to be made in the "about:config" page of this browser are freerepublic.com and codebetter.com.First you have to type "about:config" in the address-bar of Firefox and the a page will open,with an initial caution from Firefox to 'change any data very cautiously'.In this page,you have to scroll down and make the suggested changes in the "network.http.pipelining","network.http.proxy.pipelining","network.http.pipelining.maxrequests".Only difference,i noticed was that freerepublic.com has stated to change the value of the "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to 30, codebetter.com has suggested to change the maximum number of requests to 8.I have personally set this value to 30, and it has really brought some good results.

3.The third option is to download SpeedyFox which is a free software by crystalidea.com.It is downloaded within seconds, and all you have to do is to click the desk top icon of SpeedyFox and just press on the 'speed up my FireFox button' and all done.

Personal note:I have been using the second and third methods for about two weeks,and it has really brought some noticeable changes in terms of speed of my favorite browser.
