Speed up your Firefox browser

Hack A Day posts a hack on how to speed up your Firefox browser.
1. Type about:config
2. Find and change the values as shown below:
     network.http.pipelining -> true
     network.http.proxy.pipelining -> true
     network.http.pipelining.maxrequests -> 10
3. Close the about:config tab. Enjoy the newfound speed.

In the act of full disclosure, let me tell you that Microsoft's IE browser already uses http request pipelining. Incase you are interested, the mozilla site does a beautiful job of explaining what HTTP/1.1 Pipelining means.
