    Link to download it:

    Just click on the DL link.

    Trust me this works, it speeded up my Firefox A LOT and I'm on 1MEG and thought my loading couldn't get any faster.

    This really helps out 56K'ers when loading images and forums with lots of signatures and etc!

    could you ask at the other forum - exactly what does it do? what does it edit?
    and shouldnt there be different settings for 56krs/cable/dsl etc?

    If I read it right, it makes multiple connections to the server.

    A point worth noting, the maximum number of concurrent connections to a server used to be 8, but it was reduced to 2 (in theory 1 downloading and the other requesting) because the higher number caused traffic problems for some servers and other problems for ISPs. This is a general internet convention which is supposed to be observed by all browsers.

    I suspect this patch simply raises the limit, so it doesn't matter what sort of connection you've got, but you are unlikely to notice much benefit if you've got a slow connection.

    BTW, it really works.

    I'm willing to bet it just does the same thing as this thread.

    Something along the lines of that. But if you use both then your browsing speed should double, if not triple.

    A good way to test this is by deleting all your Cache. Type something in google, go to images and see how fast it loads. Took o.4 seconds to load pictures of "Goku"

    If thats what this patch does then using More connection will cuase more bandwitdh(download speed) which will result in slowing ongoing downloads(like ur downloading somehting of BT), isnt?\

    Example:
    On current FF setting it uses 2 connection =4Kb(1Connection X 2Kb)
    after tweaking it will be 10Coonection =20Kb(1Connection X 2Kb)

    Correct me....
