Firefox!

I see another has fallen into the fold. A few notes:

  • Tabbed Browsing: Fantastic!

  • Speed up Firefox. I have tested this and find that it works great. Probably only useful if on a fast connection. No dialup for you!

  • This guy has caveats, however.

  • Speed up Firefox. Deux. This speeds the launch of the application itself, and is probably only for Windows machines. Go to the properties of the shortcut(s) to Firefox that you normally use. It will probably say:

    "C:\My Documents\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

    Add this to the end:

    "C:\My Documents\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" /prefetch:1

    I believe what this does is to leave parts of the program in memory (the .dlls?) after you shut the program down. If you're like me, 75% of the PC work you do is in the webbrowser, and you're constantly opening and closing browser windows. This noticably quickens the launch of a new browser. I have not noticed any memory issues, ie, running out.
