First you have to find out what is slowing it down (if anything):

- Your connection speed can be improved only by paying for a better service.

- Nothing can make an ad load faster. The bottleneck is often the ad server itself. But blocking the ad (if you can) can speed page loading.

- If you have a compressed hard drive, it will make page loading slower.

- Nothing you do can speed up the server on the other end.

- Using during off-peak periods helps. But be aware that many sites do their backup cycles during the hours of 2 am to 6 am. They could have periods of downtime during that.

- Tricky software to increase speed doesn't work.

- If the graphics have to be resampled to fit the screen resolution, it takes longer. I found that a 640 X 480 screen loaded much slower than a 1152 X 864 screen, because the images had to be resampled to be displayed


With Firefox open do the following.

1. Type "about:config" in the address field.
2. Set the value of network.http.pipelining to "true".
3. Set the value of network.http.pipelining.maxrequests to "100".
4. Set the value of network.http.proxy.pipelining to "true"
