Firefox: Optimize for Broadband

Hi All
Came across this article in PC World (Jan 2008)
http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,136862-page,8-c,mozilla/article.html

There are 14 others, but thought this would be of use to some...

😞 DNS maybe? I use openDNS as my primary nameservers. I also like the
fasterfox add-in

Re: Firefox: Optimize for Broadband

Bellsouth DNS... adding those tweaks made things faster by a few
seconds.
