This is a handy little trick you can use with Internet Explorer 6 to make it boot up extremely fast
Make a shortcut of iexplore on your desktop ... right-click on the shortcut to Internet Explorer and add the parameter '-nohome' to the end of the command line, like so:

Target: Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" -nohome

Yes ... if you make about:blank your home page ... it'll load the default page .. you can see it in the registry .. somewhere like hkey_local_machine -- software -- microsoft -- internet explorer. and if the above mentioned parameter is specified .. the explorer will open with no page.

Similar to removing as many icons as possible from the desktop. The less work to do, the faster it all gets done.
Often I'm asked to speed up a machine, and then see the desktop packed with icons, as few as possible helps out quite a bit.

You can right click your desktop ---> on the right click menu select New --> Shortcut ...

Instead of going into the registry, open up 'Tools' and then 'Internet Options', for the Home Page, click on 'Use Blank'.
Easier and less chance of screwing up the system.

sorry but what is a shortcut?

A shortcut is a file that points to another item somewhere else on the filesystem. For instance, you could have "Shortcut to Notepad" point to Notepad.exe, in your WINDOWS folder.

lol people people. This little trick will do the Following and give the following problems:

It will Make about:blank the webpage you see when you goto IExplorer though the link

It will make MSN.com or w/e your homepage is, that much more time consuming to get to becuase it will haft to load anyways.

It will sometimes confuse IExplorer in changing some of its Inner config, therefor your Screwed. It will then show nothing BUT about:blank.

I have tested this on my friends *Test PC*

Caperjack. If you're on Broadband, try this;

1.Type "about:config" into the address bar of Firefox and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

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. 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 receives.
