Fasterfox Lite - Make Firefox Faster

Post by Doctor Inferno on Sun Dec 06, 2009 5:48 am

Fasterfox Lite: Performance and network tweaks for Firefox, without the Enhanced Prefetching.

This addon would not be experimental if it wasn't for the fact that the lead Mozilla developers don't like what this addon is able to conveniently allow. This addon is stable but was sandboxed due to its simplified ability to add possibly excessive configurations.

Lite does not mean less performance, it is just a reference to the removal of the obtrusive Enhanced Prefetching ability in Fasterfox. Enhanced Prefetching was removed for this Lite version because it wastes a lot of server bandwidth and causes unnecessary server load.

Fasterfox Lite 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.)

So far I have no problem at all. Whether it runs faster, I'm not sure.
