Firefox on steroids

Have you ever wondered why Firefox is so popular?

Firefox is fast BUT that is still not the fastest it can go

To put Firefox on steroids do the following:

Type in "about:config" in the URL box (This is the secret switch which allows you to ramp up firefox performance drastically)
Of Course I am assuming you have a excellent internet connection if you are on a 56kps Dial Up no way you will notice improvements

Right Click
Create a new Integer
Enter "nglayout.initialpaint.delay"
Enter "0"

Right Click
Create a new Integer
Enter "browser.cache.memory.capacity"
Enter "-1"

Filter "network.http.max-connections"
Change the value to "64"

Filter "network.http.max-connections-per-server"
Change the value to "32"

Filter "network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server"
Change the value to "24"

Filter "network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy"
Change the value to "16"

Filter "network.http.pipelining.maxrequest"
Change the value to "8"

Filter "network.http.pipelining"
Change the value to "true"

Right Click
Create a new Boolean
Enter "network.http.pipelining.firstrequest"
Choose "true"

Filter "network.http.pipelining.ssl"
Change the value to "true"

Filter "network.http.proxy.pipelining"
Change the value to "true"

Filter "network.http.redirection-limit"
Change the value to "32"

Filter "network.http.request.max-start-delay"
Change the value to "0"


Create a new Integer "ui.submenudelay"
Set value to "0"

Then RESTART Firefox

Edit: Sorry I forgot to add how to reset the values

First you sort the value by status
Then you right click and reset them


Or alternatively

Start Firefox in safe mode, in the dialog that appears select Reset all user preferences to Firefox defaults, then click Make Changes and Restart

could someone write a program that U
could download and run and this could all be done all at once.

What a time saver that would be

I certainly do not have the skill but I bet someone that is a firefox fan could.
