Firefox speed-up

Lots of people have been talking about the Firefox speed tweak that was in The Inquirer recently. Here's a link to the article.

Update, Feb 2, 2005
Never can tell when links and/or text will disappear so here's a rundown on how to accomplish the speed-up:

Type "about:config" into the address bar, then alter the following entries: change "network.http.pipelining" to "true", "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true" and lastly "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to 30, meaning it will be able to make 30 requests at once.

Update, Feb 7. 2005
Another tip surfaced from what appears to be the original article and that's to create a new integer from the about:config display (right-click anywhere and select New -> Integer), name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set it to 0.
