Faster Firefox

<< < (3/3)

Now watch — the Mac version will be like IE 4.

Enabling pipelining is definitely recommended.  Opera has had this by default for years and is one of the big reasons it has had such a reputation for speed in the past.

I wouldn't worry about any of the other settings.

I'm not a real fan of chrome. Firefox is really a much better browser now, particularly 3.1. I hated 2.0. I didn't like 3.0.* much, but 3.1 and 3.2_pre are a lot better.

Good article though ;) great suggestions in there. (i never used ff much i didn't even know it had about:config)

Arent most of these things done by the FasterFox add on?

Yeah, FF 2 is why I tried Opera and Camino and all those others.
