    can anyone post their tweaks in firefox? here is what i do to make it faster:

    1.Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:
    network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
    Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

    2. Alter the entries as follows:
    Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
    Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
    Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

    3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

    yeah, for all you firefox fans, try what i did and see if you notice an imporvement.

    as for me, i just tried opera, and it's extremely fast also. however, one thing that i cannot stand is the ads. is there an adblocker add-on to opera like how there's one for firefox?

    The bad thing about FF is the having a lot of addons slows it down significantly...And IMO w/out them it's the worst popular browser.
    I use it, functionality is great, but I'm really dissatisfied with it's speed and no tweaking helps.

    I use Firefox and Google Chrome, lately I've been using Chrome since its much faster and easier to navigate, only thing is it lacks advance features.

    Firefox. I only use IE if I have no other choice and no other browsers at all at any time.

    i just recently switched to Opera 9.6 due to terrible instability of FF3 and random crashes i've been experiencing on several machines

    opera is actually a really good browser
    i'm already used to it and in fact prefer it to FF3

    there are some drawbacks
    like auto complete doesnt seem to exist
    imageshack doesnt havea toolbar for it

    its not too bad though

    Well, I am mostly a firefox guy. The only thing is that I have so many plugins, that sometimes it gets easier to use a simple un-patched browser. Then it comes down to which browser is right for the job.

    • I voted for mozilla in addition to firefox simply because I use the seamonkey fork as my main clean browser.
    • Once in a while, I find a site that gets lots of “timeout” errors and then I switch to chrome.
    • Even more rare is a site that seems to be so poorly made that only IE will render it. Then I have to go to IE6.
    I prefer to find the balance point between cheap and good. So no, I am not going to buy something that costs huge $$$ if there is something less expensive that can take a nice OC.

    I will basically not entertain extreme edition stuff and the like.

    Opera is my go-to browser for everyday use. It just keeps getting better and better with each new version, and they're quite active on updating it.
    Particle's First Rule of Online Technical Discussion:
    As a thread about any computer related subject has its length approach infinity, the likelihood and inevitability of a poorly constructed AMD vs. Intel fight also exponentially increases.

    Rule 1A:
    Likewise, the frequency of a car pseudoanalogy to explain a technical concept increases with thread length. This will make many people chuckle, as computer people are rarely knowledgeable about vehicular mechanics.

    Rule 2:
    When confronted with a post that is contrary to what a poster likes, believes, or most often wants to be correct, the poster will pick out only minor details that are largely irrelevant in an attempt to shut out the conflicting idea. The core of the post will be left alone since it isn't easy to contradict what the person is actually saying.

    Rule 2A:
    When a poster cannot properly refute a post they do not like (as described above), the poster will most likely invent fictitious counter-points and/or begin to attack the other's credibility in feeble ways that are dramatic but irrelevant. Do not underestimate this tactic, as in the online world this will sway many observers. Do not forget: Correctness is decided only by what is said last, the most loudly, or with greatest repetition.

    Rule 3:
    When it comes to computer news, 70% of Internet rumors are outright fabricated, 20% are inaccurate enough to simply be discarded, and about 10% are based in reality. Grains of salt--become familiar with them.

    Remember: When debating online, everyone else is ALWAYS wrong if they do not agree with you!

    Random Tip o' the Whatever
    You just can't win. If your product offers feature A instead of B, people will moan how A is stupid and it didn't offer B. If your product offers B instead of A, they'll likewise complain and rant about how anyone's retarded cousin could figure out A is what the market wants.

    I switched from avant to firefox.

    I still prefer avant - but with dual monitors i need to be able to have more than one instance open at a time - which avant for some reason doesnt support.
