    Default Limiting download speed.

    When I'm downloading a file that is going at say 30kb/s, it makes browsing very slow, so what I wan't to be able to do is limit the download speed of the file, so that I can still browse at a reasonable speed while having the file slowly chugging along in the background.

    Is there any way to do this?

    Using Firefox and Jetstream starter.

    download managers such as flashget can do that for you
    flashget can let you adjust your download speed realtime
    so.. you can load a big page or load few pages when download is capped
    then let download go fast again when you look around those pages
    kinda handy..i do that sometimes
