Not sure if anyone has ever posted this before.
Found this (http://www.techmachi.com/?p=521). The No.1 Speed hacks is quite handy, just changed my settings and browsing does seem a little faster at the moment. If you do try it than I sugggest you take screenshots of the original settings.

Update on the speed hacks (No 1), after 5 minutes the net stooped to a crawl :groan: so changed the following only back to it s original values

network.http.max-connections: change this to 96. -> back to 30

network.http.max-connections-per-server: change this to 32. -> back to 15

and its working like a charm...

Most servers probably dont appreciate being overrun by requests and hence they might not serve the page to you.

Agreed, according to this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_pipelining) the servers themselves should support it in order for it to work as required.
