Bring Out Your Inner Hacker…You Know You Want To
n this short video, Ed brings us up to speed on a quick little hack posted in the Thirty Day Challenge forums by “Mountainguy” from Australia. He was having trouble with the speed of Flock – turns out, other people were too. Here’s the video – below are the steps to take and some screen shots:
Speed Up Your Browsing In Flock
 type “about:config” into the address bar at the top and wait for page to load
 in the filter type “network.http”
I had to split up these pictures to get them to fit and still be readable – I hope that with the instructions below and the video, it will all make sense…
 locate the strand called “network.http.pipelining” and double click it to change the value from false to true
 Do the same to “network.http.proxy.pipelining” – double click it too.
 Then locate “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” – double click and change the value to 30 or higher (Ed and mountainguy are using 40 – for the screen shot, I’m using 35, but I’ll probably switch it to 40 – why not?)
 Finally, close flock and load it up again…”
Here’s some additional reading plus some further discussion on speed related issues….
