Daily Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.



Fasterfox Lite is a Firefox extension allows you to easily tweak many network and rendering settings such as simultaneous connections, pipelining, cache and initial paint delay. Unique to this Lite version are included options for SSL Pipelining, timer-based content reflows, UI Responsiveness, Link Prefetching, IPv6 DNS lookups, and by default the Page Load Timer is disabled. If you want to manually change the "about:config" settings, then the Fasterfox Lite preset must first be saved to the "Custom" setting. This is to prevent the configurations from being different from a selected preset's settings.

Fasterfox Lite comes with pre-configured tweaks to improve the browsing speed of Firefox when using most broadband internet connections. Fasterfox Lite will speed up your web browsing right out of the box with no assembly required. People who complain that Firefox is slow obviously do not have Fasterfox Lite installed. (Actual speed improvements may vary depending on the desired settings that are used and the presented testing situation.)

Currently there seems to be an error when trying to install the extension from it's Mozilla addons webpage, so if that occurs, download it from HERE and then drag-and-drop the .xpi file into Firefox which will cause the addon installation to begin.
