I'm actaully going to let mine keep getting distorted to see if it starts to look like anything after a while. maybe it will look like the virgin mary and I can sell it on ebay for mega-$$$ to some crazy casino!SelfBaisResistor said:As long as this is a friendly reminder thread... You all should remember to reload your avatars. It looks rather ugly around here with all those messed up, blocky avatars.
i think the users here have a SLIGHT preference toward firefox. it's not like there's been 3-4 threads just about firefox alone and it's tiny advantages over IE.nrabbit said:is firefox good? i have heard a lot about it but dont't have it yet
this works best only if youre using broadband, and for me personally it's already fast enough. 56k users would benefit from something like this the most, too bad there's like no difference in speed if you do this on 56k.twoflower said:speaking of firefox, i heared this today, and it helps me alot ! :
Speed up your Firefox browser on a broadband connection....
1.Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return.
Scroll down and look for the following entries:
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.
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.
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. If you're using a broadband
connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!
