    I turned it on a while ago for Firefox and even before Firefox I was using a similar idea for IE. The only problem I've run into with the pipe hack is when trying to access Aplia, an educational web site, pages will not fully load. After I turn it off, pages load fine. Other than that, its awesome.

      Or you can just use this extension.

          Over the last few months I've noticed FireFox does way better if no extensions are installed at all! I only use 'order tabs' or 'organize tabs' right now.

            That's a good choice floris, I went around installing extensions that are uninstallable

              If you were to use the extension I listed, you could apply the tweak and then uninstall.

                  I did install the extension about a month ago, and didn't notice any difference in speed

                          Do you tell us some tricks? I think your post is incomplete (because of that , at the end)
                          That's the end of that!

                            I used the tweaks at Neowin to make Firefox faster and now pages load seemingly instantly:
