 Firefox and Broadband

I found this while surfing the other day. Tried it yesterday and it actually works.

I have a broadband Internet connection (e.g. Cable, DSL). Is there any way I can optimize Mozilla, Netscape 7.x or Firefox for it, i.e. make it work faster?
Yes, you can optimize Mozilla, Netscape 7.x and Firefox for broadband Internet connections. Add or edit the following preferences by typing "about:config" in your browser's address bar (where you would normally type a web address):
network.http.max-connections 32
network.http.max-connections-per-server 8
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy 8
network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server 4
network.http.pipelining true
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests 8

To edit a preference, type "network" into the Filter field. Then, right-click on the respective preference and select Modify from the context menu.
Changing these preferences will speed up your surfing noticeably, especially on pages with many images or if you are simultaneously loading multiple pages.

Billy, I read that setting pipelining to True may speed up some pages but may break some other sites ;(

You got me there Dennis. All I can say is so far so good. Even if it starts giving me problems, it takes about 30 seconds to change the settings back to default.

With IE 6 it takes 11 seconds to load http://tractorpoint.com/cgi-bin/tractor/today.pl

Using Firefox 2 and the new settings, it takes 7 seconds.
