TEST, Firefox Speed Up and some info for 2008

Last post was a test of SCRIBEFIRE.AUTO blogging posting direct through firefox.

Also I've just set Firefox (Mac OS X may (should) work with Windoze) to 'speed up'

Here's how

Speeding Up Firefox For Broadband Users has a useful guide on speeding up firefox for broadband users. basically after getting to the hidden config settings you set the browser to request more data that it usually does.

1.Type about:config into the address bar and hit return.

Scroll down and look for the following entries:


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!

Best of all, it works !!
And it now feels almost as fast as Safari n I get lottsa a little addons n pointless crap on top :)


Being a big fan of NEW ORDER & JOY DIVISION heres something regarding Tony Wilson (Factory Records) and his recent passing.

Thanks for the Acid....

Peace Off All
