That's it. I'm switching to FireFox. IE is so slow.

Oh, and what's this? FireFox is slower on this computer, even with the hack? WTF not cool

I sacrificed a bit (small bit) of speed for that good security FireFox offered. Also far more user friendly, imo.

I was testing the tweak and it seems that when I set it up to 30 it was fast then build up, it go alot faster but then at 100 it take a little bit to load(blank screen) then everything comes up. Hopefully this one works.

user_pref("content.interrupt.parsing", true);
user_pref("content.max.tokenizing.time", 2250000);
user_pref("content.notify.interval", 750000);
user_pref("content.notify.ontimer", true);
user_pref("content.switch.threshold", 750000);
user_pref("nglayout.initialpaint.delay", 0);
user_pref("network.http.max-connections", 48);
user_pref("network.http.max-connections-per-server", 16);
user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-proxy", 16);
user_pref("network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server", 8);
user_pref("browser.cache.memory.capacity", 65536);

I think I well give it a try

EDIT: I'm have trouble finding the content file. Do I have to make one?
