    Got this somewhere, n it seems its worked for me, so thought of sharing.
    Follow the following steps to speed up ur firefox browser.

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

    Cool info. I aso used some entries like these to speed up Firefox, but now I've switched over to IE7. Its as good as Firefox (xept the the themes).

    Only problem is that Yahoo says it doesn't support IE7 and loads up in some style thats compatible. There's no download manager but I use Download Accelerator Plus so no problem for me.

    ^ that is good ... gr8 actually ... since MS has been shunning that concept for more than 5 years now ...

    b.t.w. IE sometimes causes the svchost.exe to suck up high processor ... does it happen there?
  9. thx akkyy but i dun need it much... coz i have great internet con. and the pg loadz super fast

    yaar ...
    my frend has a pentium III ... and the prob was that whenever he used IE .. .one of the service host (svchost.exe) started acting up - taking 90% of processor ... kinda hanging the comp ...

    and firefox used to kill his RAM ... so coulcnt use that either for thefear of hanging

    so he was stuck up ...

    so i did the best i could do ...

    i loaded lynx on his PC :grin:

    Badiyan hain man, bloody my 2.8Ghz intel 915 mb,.... it sucks sooo much, whenevr i wanna code in any console based lang, the cpu controlled fan starts acting like a bloody mixer. Even for the high-end graphic games.

    Wish i could have bought a AMD then. :(

    AMD 64 bit series is much stable and cooler than P4 (3.2 +) for high end gaming....
