How to Make Internet Pages Load Faster

Perhaps we have become spoiled, but when we want information on the Internet, we do not want to wait more than a couple of seconds for a webpage to load. If you want to be able to find information more quickly, you can do so regardless of what kind of browser you are using. There are procedures for both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

Make Internet Explorer Faster

Step

Click on the "Start" menu at the bottom left of the screen. When this menu opens, locate the "Run" button. When the "Run" window opens, type the word "regedit" into the box in the window. Press "OK."

Step

In the next window, select "HKEY-CURRENT-USER" to continue the speeding-up process. An expandable menu will appear.

Step

First click on "Software," then on "Microsoft." Continue by selecting "Windows," "Current Version" and "Internet Settings." You will now see two fields that say "MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server" and "MaxConnectionsPerServer."

Step

Change the values in these fields to "10."

Step

Restart Internet Explorer. The webpages should now load faster.

Make Firefox Faster

Step

Click on the "Firefox" icon on your desktop or task bar to open the Firefox web browser.

Step

In the address bar, delete whatever web address is currently displayed and type "about:config." (The quotation marks around the words are not needed.) A new page will open. There will be a filter bar at the top of the screen.

Step

Type "network" into the filter bar. A set of items associated with "network" will appear below the filter bar.

Step

Find the "network.http.pipelining" selection from the list and set it to "TRUE" by double-clicking on it.

Step

Find the "pipelining.maxrequests" selection and change it to a value of "10." Close Firefox and restart it. The Internet pages should now load faster.
