How to speed up the loading time of new twitter or other websites significantly? Idk how's new twitter loading time on your machine, but on mine it's a pain in the ass until it's loading 100% with firefox. So i figured if i disable google analytics, the page loads significantly faster, i mean lightning fast even in the peak hours. How? 1. You can edit your hosts file adding the following lines to it: HTML: 127.0.0.1 www.google-analytics.com 127.0.0.1 ssl.google-analytics.com Somehow it doesn't affect my firefox, it only works with IE for me. The location of the hosts file is depending on your OS: Code: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosts_%28file%29#Location_in_the_file_system You can edit it with notepad, just pay attention not to specify any extension when you save it! 2. Install adblock plus addon for firefox and add a new filter: HTML: google-analytics.* 3. Install noscript firefox addon and block google analytics. I guess there are some other options as well, these are the most basic ones. Note: If you're using google analytics (as a site owner) it's not the wisest thing to edit your hosts file to block it , then use option 2 or 3 and disable it on specific websites only. Even if you don't care much about your privacy, it's still a good idea disabling analytics to speed up browsing! Save yourself time & bandwidth, throw your :fing02: to google and hit two birds with one stone: enjoy the real speed of your net w/o letting google to collect sensitive personal information about you!
