    I just ran across this and thought I'd share...it def. works, though I wonder how 30 simul queries from your IP makes your ISP feel...

    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 30 (mine is set to 100..hehehe). This means it will make 30 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 recieves.

    You can also use fasterfox a plug-in for FF (check on the FF website) if you want a copy for Version 3 of FF let me know and I will send you my modded copy so that it works with the new version as the dev has not released the new update.

    I did some digging on I*E tweaks and came up with this vid. I have to say that with I*E behind the proxy (t0r) it's about comparable in speed. It's a proxy after all so it's not lightening in a bottle here.

    This does require some registry work, so if that makes you nervous, be careful. these changes are pretty straight forward (just be sure to write down the default values BEFORE you make any changes).

    This video shows you how to basically do the pipelining trick for IE (same concept anyhow)
