    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.

    So is it any good? Are there bugs? Does Adblock work? Have no problems with 2.0.0.14 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.

    I should hope you are using proxies... I don't know if it registers more than 1 copy from the same IP...

    Always.

    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.
    [I.R.A]_FBi and ..'Ant'.. say thanks.
