Speed up Mozilla FireFox

FireFox is a web browser that can browse faster. We can make it faster. How?
Type "about :config" in the address field without " and hit ENTER.

  1. Set the value of network.http.pipelining to "true".
  2. Set the value of network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to "50".
    This means it will make 50 requests at once.
  3. Set the value of network.http.proxy.pipelining to "true".
  4. Set the value of nglayout.initialpaint.delay to "0".
    If your configuration doesn't have "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" you can make it by right click anywhere, select New > Integer, then name it with "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. Since you’re broadband - it shouldn’t have to wait.

Mozilla Firefox

Newest Version:2.0 for Windows, English (5.6MB) for Windows, English (4.9MB)

One of the Internet Browser that provide add-ons that add new functionality to it's applications is Mozilla Firefox. It's is called Extensions. They can add anything from a toolbar button to a completely new feature. They allow the application to be customized to fit the personal needs of each user if they need additional features, while minimizing the size of the application itself.

Extensions weren't create by Mozilla. Everyone can create the extension for the Mozilla. The function of the extension can replace some software's functions such as FoxyTunes 2.0 can replace media player's functions. DownThemAll! can replace download manager's functions.

How it's work? The extension is like a software that is build in the Mozilla Firefox, but Mozilla Firefox can give the function of the program from the extensions. So that, Mozilla Firefox will have the other programs function that help us not to run any software that Mozilla Firefox can replace it.

Not only software's program, the extension can make user more comfortable for browsing sites. Fasterfox can make Mozilla Firefox tweak many network and rendering settings such as simultaneous connections, pipelining, cache, DNS cache, and initial paint delay. So the users can have a loading time faster than before because of this extension.

Security is also enable for the extentions. Adblock can help Mozilla Firefox protect from the Ad-wares.

Not only these function of extension, for the information please visit the official site above. I will also try to make the extension tutorial so that all of you can enjoy the features from the Mozilla Firefox.
