Server Raping With FireFox

| November 14th, 2005

Although nowdays extensions like FasterFox are now available for tweaking the pipelining properties of FireFox you can manually tweak these settings as explained below. Try it yourself and you’ll never look back to Internet Explorer ever.

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. If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages MUCH faster now!”

And by the way opening many server requests and hoggin up the bandwidth is called Server Raping (-;.
