Tweak Firefox

Posted: February 10, 2011 in Internet, Software

Firefox 4 Beta 11 just out. Out of curiosity, I install and compare with my fav browser, the Chrome.

Out of the box, Chrome is faster but after some minor tweak, this fox could performs a little bit better than Chrome, although not by huge margin.

Type about:config

Find these three things:

  • network.http.max-persistant-connections-per-server   –> 4
  • network.http.pipelining –> true
  • network.http.pipelining.maxrequest –> 8 is recommended. But you may increase it to 32 or more. (Note: Don’t be too selfish :p )
  • network.http.proxy.pipelining –> true

That’s it.
