Here’s a great tip for improving your surfing experience while using a tabbed browser (verified in IE7 and Firefox by me):
Clicking the scroll wheel on a link on a page opens that page in a new tab. So now I don’t have to hold down Control to click on all the interesting links that I see in an article!
(Clicking it on the title of a tab will also close that tab. That trick also works in Visual Studio!)
I wanted to do the same thing that I talked about in my “Want to Violate Internet Standards?” post in Firefox. Here are directions:
In the address bar, type:
In the filter box that appears, type:
You’ll see four settings. The ones we want to modify are network.http.max-connections and network.http.max-connections-per-server. Double-click these to set new values. I did max-connections at 64 and max-connections-per-server at 16 and that made me happy with the download speed.
