Mozilla Firefox has already impressed us with its speed, so there’s no surprise that this browser is now installed on millions of computers from all over the world.
If you require further optimizations for greater speed, jumping into the hidden Firefox configuration options might have some very positive results. On the other hand, if you want to avoid tweaking the browser manually, there’s always a second option.
It’s called Mozilla Optimizer and comes as a downloadable tool that increases the speed of page loads. Aside from tackling Firefox, Mozilla Optimizer also works with Firebird and Netscape 6 and 7.
In just a few words, older versions of Firefox could be manually tweaked by enabling HTTP Pipelining and Keep Alive functions, so that pages can be loaded even faster than in the standard versions. Mozilla Optimizer does the whole thing automatically, so all you need to do is to actually press the apply button and you’re ready to go.
The application is completely portable, which means you can carry it around on a removable drive, without burdening your system’s registry. The interface is plain simple, encasing just a few options concerning the browsers you wish to optimize.
If you wish to revoke the optimizations you have made at a certain point, you can turn to the “Remove” Mode, which results in erasing all previous adjustments.
To conclude, Mozilla Optimizer is indeed a great tool if you don’t fancy manual browser tweaking. It’s the perfect solution for loading webpages faster, resulting in a more productive browsing experience.
