speed up firefox - What a difference

Originally heard this posted on the Daily Source code but then found the link since I wasn't able to update it while driving - what a difference. Very easy to do:

In Firefox, put in about:config into the address bar.
Then set

Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”
Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”
and then
set network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to a higher number than 4.

It also notes that you should put in
nglayout.initialpaint.delay and set it to 0. (this value is the amount of time Firefox waits before acting).

It's a great performance increase. Try it.
