Thank you very much! I use Firefox and the difference is absolutely incredible. I literally cannot believe the speed that pages load now!

Yeah, I always change the pipelining in Firefox when I install fresh copies. If you cannot see it on the video, here are the things that they change (even though they miss one off) - change the maxrequests one to whatever you like, but I use 30 myself.

Also, for people who have a small amount of RAM, you might like to try this method in Firefox:
Type in about:config in the address bar (like on the video above) and right click anywhere and create a new boolean. Call this new boolean config.trim_on_minimize, and then set it to true. Then restart Firefox.
Now, what this does, is when you minimize Firefox, it copies itself from your RAM onto your hard drive, so less RAM is used. Once you restore it again, it copies itself back into RAM. Often useful to get some RAM back when it is needed.

Oldie. :p But it is really necessary to speed up the browsers, I wonder if there is any tip for Opera. :whi:

I can get to the Internet Settings part for the IE but there is no Maxconnections etc... files? O well.

Yeah, same for me. Ah well XDand me too.
i just re-installed firefox to try it seeing as the IE instructions didn't work.

so yup, firefox seems to be faster for me than IE now.
guess i'll have to learn to like it then, the interface is unfamiliar to me.:confused:

It seems to have worked. If my conection speed hadn't slowed down to 70KB/s this morning, I'd say if there's any improvement.
Thanks for posting the video! :tmb:

Thats what I did, I see some change but not a drastic one, but I have to say it is a little nicer.

Already know this. There are a few settings that can improve browsing speed but some of them break loading of sites esp. pipelining and number of connections. You can easily overload a server if the server does not support the changed settings.

Yeah, I always change the pipelining in Firefox when I install fresh copies. If you cannot see it on the video, here are the things that they change (even though they miss one off) - change the maxrequests one to whatever you like, but I use 30 myself.

From the official MozillaZine of network.http.pipelining.maxrequests (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Network.http.pipelining.maxrequests), the value is only between 1 and 8, anything higher than 8 it won't do any good or any effect.

Beside this the trim trick is good.
