ASK ANY OF FIREFOX'S avid supporters and they'll tell you it's the fastest browser around, true or not.
Well, the INQ's stumbled on a little tweak that's easy to do and sends the browser into overdrive.
All you've got to do is type "about:config" into your address bar, wait for it to load, then alter the following entries: change "network.http.pipelining" to "true", "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true" and lastly "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to 30, meaning it will be able to make 30 requests at once.
