Also a way to speed it up:
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 8. This means it will make 8 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​
Mouse Gestures is my favorite... useful AND something to mess around with when you're bored.

Adblock is awesome.

Answers is a useful addon, if you dont know what something/someone/whatever is, just alt+click it and it will pop up the page for it.


I tried to use Firefox, but right from day one (new computer) my commit charge crept up too fast, so I had to go back to IE (where it creeps up a lot slower). Anybody know of any solutions to that?
