The other day, I was chatting with one of my frendz, who asked me how to get a faster speed. Well, one obvious answer is intall firefox. But then, you have one more option, too. That is to change the configuration settings for Firefox. See how to change it...
Here is the step by step "instructions"...
  1. Open up a Firefox browser.
  2. In the address bar, type "about:config" (without quote) [There are 3 kinds of "entries": string, boolean and integer.]
  3. Look out for the following entry: network.http.pipelining
  4. Set it equal to "true" (Just double clicking would do)
  5. Find "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" and set it equal to any integer more than 15
  6. Now look for "network.http.proxy.pipelining" and set it equal to true
  7. Now right click on any entry and go to New=> Integer and type the following name (without quote) "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set it equal to 0
And you are done!
Note: Broadband users would benefit much more!

One thing you've forgot to add:
1. type about:config in the address bar
2. search for network.dns.disableIPv6
3. set it as "true"

reboot either the system or the modem. The difference will be visible.

The other thing, which I guess you may have already known, is that you've to use open dns instead of the sluggish, lousy ones offered by your ISP.

DNS:
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

Using fasterfox will give better performance, I believe.

Thanks,
Saurav
