Fasterfox addon - is it o.k. to use?

  J55 15:58 05 Dec 2005

I am using Firefox 1.5. I have tried using the FasterFox Add on and find it's more than brilliant. But reading some comments on the Mozzila website suggest that this puts an unfair burdon on websites and can cause some sites to ban you from using them. Is this true and are there any security issues I should be aware of?

Fasterfox does thisautomatically but shows up to the site
do this manaully and the site will not know

Now, in the Address bar type

about:config (hit enter)

You will see a whole load of options (reminds me of Regedit) Change the following values as stated:

network.http.max-connections = 64 network.http.max-connections-per-server= 20 network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server= 10 network.http.pipelining = true network.http.pipelining.maxrequests = 100 or 200 (choose one) nglayout.initialpaint.delay = 0 network.http.request.max-start-delay = 0

If nglayout.initialpaint.delay doesnt exist, Right click, new integer.

Close mozilla and start it again. Now Mozilla Burns sites like wild.

WARNING: These settings make you download sites considerably faster, BUT put a great overload on the sites you go to. This really means nothing other then the fact that anyone else browsing will just go slower and you will absorb their speed.

There's also Finetune Firefox (free) from:

Works with dialup and BB equally well and I'm using it with 1.5 - saves all that about:config work...:-)

According to the FasterFox extension link it can be used with 1.5 (Version 0.7.9):
