    I don't think thats the same page I've used before, but the settings sound familiar.

    I wouldn't bother with the exe....but i'm also one of those ultra-paranoid people.
    The world really is out to get me you know.
    What do you change?

    I'd have been too chicken to try that patch and still am. Reading between the lines the basic technical basis seems sound, particularly if you are on DSL and the extra overhead associated with opening additional TCP connections is more than compensated for by the reduced latency associated with parallelism. It just doesn't seem very server friendly.

    I took the chance and tried it. Nothing has crashed yet and pages appear to be loading faster.

    I think it probably is, however I dont have any problems with the way firefox is now, pages load fast enough for me.
    I'm not going to take my chances using it however, dont need any extra exe's loading up just to browse firefox.

    Firefox patch?

    Can someone look at this patch and tell if it is legitimate ?
    I came across a post on dslreports.com that has this as the subject.
