Here's a nice speed booster for all you FireFox fans (if you have high-speed interenet):
Type "about:config" into your address bar (click "I'll be Careful).
Find the settings below and change them:
- network.http.pipelining > TRUE
- network.http.pipelining.maxrequests > 100
- network.http.proxy.pipelining > TRUE
Then, right click anywhere, and select New > Integer.
- nglayout.initialpaintdelay > 0
Then go browsing some crazy pages like www.yahoo.com and www.msn.com and feel the power!
Basically, pipelining allows the browser to send multiple requests and receive information through multiple threads, while the initialpaintdelay forces the browser to wait 0ms before sending a request.
I have mine set to 20. But 100 seems a little faster i find
There is any version of firefox 3 64 bits?
Was there ever a 64bit Firefox?
what are the benefits of 64bit in a "simple" web browser???
bigger cache than 4 GB in the main memory?
So is it any good? Are there bugs? Does Adblock work? Have no problems with 126.96.36.199 so I'm not in a hurry to 'downgrade' Maybe I'll wait for OS re-install, have to install everything again, so might as well go newer.
well with 3 out i guess its time to upgrade from 1.5 though i will miss it, it served me well
Yes, same build (2008052906)... But I still downloaded it again, for the record
got 3 computers in the house and i think all 3 of them are running on RC3, but hey a download doesn't hurt.
Wow the "about:mozilla" quote has changed too lol
bus wide with 64 bits read more bits than 32 bits... I think it's a little faster
Watch what happens.
I should hope you are using proxies... I don't know if it registers more than 1 copy from the same IP...
Theres an x64 version of Thunderbird too.
If you look at the last post i think it is on page one, I was saying how the only thing lacking in x64 browsers is flash support.
Okay Thanks! I see there FF RC3 not FF 3 final. But owell it dont matter after all.
one of those is me
Twitter (Im following Mozilla) says over 8 million downloads. Their website says 9.4 million.
I don't know who to believe but at least they beat the old record.
