Speed Up Firefox 3 - Make Firefox 3 Super Fast

Speed Up Firefox  - Make Firefox Super FastWhen it comes to Speed Firefox tops. The World's Most Popular browser Mozilla Firefox is certainly speedy. Browsing with it is a great experience what's more the addons power up it really well. These days most of the users use a high speed broad band connection. So they wont get the full utility from firefox 3 because Firefox is configured to work on slow (dial-up) connections by default. Applying certain tweaks optimize Firefox 3 for Fast for broadband connections. Dial Up users wont get much benefit from this but certainly broad band users will.
Here are some tweaks that could speed up Firefox 3 by optimizing it for fast broad band connections.
Pipelining is a technology used to speed up firefox 3 really well. This technology will allow FireFox to load all the page elements simultaneously instead of loading them one by one. This will make Firefox really fast. Here's how to speed up Firefox 3 to the maximum.

  1. Enter about:config in the address bar of Firefox 3. You can see lot of options displayed.
  2. Type network.http in the Filter box.
  3. You will see an option called network.http.pipelining double click the entry to make it true and do the same for network.http.proxy.pipelining. This is done to Enable Firefox to do multiple requests to a server at a time. So if you have a high speed connection you will be benefited.
  4. Now for the entry network.http.pipelining.maxrequests set its value to 30.

This number 30 means that Firefox will make 30 requests to a server at a time.
For an Extra Speed boost right click in a blank space in the above window and select NEW> Integer from the right click menu.Give its name as nglayout.initialpaint.delay and give it's value as 0. This is the amount of time Firefox waits before processing any information it received.

If you want to Speed Up Firefox 3 Even More then create these values

  • network.dns.disableIPv6 set its value to False

  • content.notify.backoffcount value as 5

  • plugin.expose_full_path value as true”.

  • ui.submenuDelay and value as 0

Make Firefox 3 Use Less Ram For Its Cache

This isn't really a speed boost but will be helpful for people with less ram.For this firefox tweak type about:config in the address bar. And search for browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewer and double click it and set its value to 0. (If you dont see it create one as a boolean value by right clicking and New -> Boolean)Thats it Firefox wont now eat up more memory for its cache.

Now just restart you browser and see the speed increase in Firefox 3. If you have any suggestions and tweaks comment it. I will include them in the post.

Control Your PC Actions with Mouse Gestures - StrokeIt is Back!

Control Your PC Actions with Mouse Gestures - StrokeIt is Back!There might be many mouse gesture applications around in the web but there is nothing that could pose a strong rival to StrokeIt. This great mouse gesture application popped into the wild almost 8 years ago. But after February 2005 it seemed like the programs development staunched. Now Stroke it is again back in action! the program developer came up with the news that StrokeIt version 0.9.6 will run in all windows versions starting from Windows 95 to the newest Windows 7.

The developer had added a new portable feature too. So taking the program along with us on the go wont be a problem. This is what the developer says about StrokeIt.
StrokeIt is an advanced mouse gesture recognition engine and command processor. What is a mouse gesture? Mouse gestures are simple symbols that you "draw" on your screen using your mouse. When you perform a mouse gesture that StrokeIt can recognize, it will perform the "action" associated with that gesture. In short, it's a nifty little program that lets you easily control programs by drawing symbols with your mouse.

StrokeIt can currently recognize more than 80 unique mouse gestures and can be easily trained to recognize many more. For each gesture recognized, StrokeIt can execute a user-defined set of commands within the active application. StrokeIt commands are defined within plugin libraries that can be easily created by third parties to do nearly anything.

Control Your PC Actions with Mouse Gestures - StrokeIt is Back!

The program supports Safari and Google Chrome too. StrokeIt can currently recognize over 80 programs. And with all these superb features available the program is absolutely Free for personal use.

Speed Up Windows 7 - Ultimate Guide To Make Windows 7 Blazing Fast!!!

Here is the Guide to Speed Up Windows 7 - Ultimate Guide To Make Windows 7 Blazing Fast!!!
Windows 7 is Engineered for speed. Special attention has been given by the Windows 7 team for making Windows 7 faster than the previous operating systems. Windows 7 is much faster than Windows Vista, but even then most of us don't get satisfied with it. There are many who still have their old PC. Installing Windows 7 on them wont be as soothing as they work with with XP and Even with latest hardware's installed some users still long for more performance. At least if we don't make it lightning fast we can optimize Windows 7 to the maximum possible extent and enjoy the maximum performance we could squeeze out from it. So for all the extra performance lovers, let me present you wit this Ultimate Guide To Speed Up Windows 7.

Speed Up Windows 7 - The Ultimate Guide To  Make Windows 7 Blazing FastI guarantee you that after following this guide and implementing the recommendations on your PC, you will really get the performance gain.

The bare Minimum Requirements You need To Run Windows 7

1) 1GHz processor (32- or 64-bit)
2) 1GB of main memory
3) 16GB of available disk space
4) Support for DX9 graphics with 128MB of memory (for the Aero interface)
5) A DVD - R/W drive

Even if you don't have the DX 9 graphics card there is no problem because our target is performance not the " Eyecandy " . Of course if you need the aero experience you need a powerful graphics card for sure.

So lets startThe Ultimate Guide to Speed up Windows 7

  1. Speed Up the Windows 7 Boot Speed

  2. A simple tweak will help you to decrease the boot time of windows 7. You will be benified by this tweak only if you have a multiple core processor. These days most of the computers have a dual core or quad core or something better than that CPU's.

    • Press [Win] + R or take the RUN option from the start menu.

    • Now type msconfig in there and press Enter Key to open up the System Configuration Window. Click on the Boot tab in there.
      You will see a box called Time out. This is the time (in sec) which the system waits for the user to select the operating system to boot to.

    • If you use only a single operating system (don't dual boot) you can safely set the value to 0.

    • But if you have more than one operating system installed then set it to 3 or more (which ever is convenient).

    • Now after doing the above step click the " Advanced Options " button. The Boot Advanced Options Window will then pop up.

    • Tick the check box saying "Number of Processors". Now click on the drop down box and select the maximum number of processor cores (might be 2 or more).

    • Press " OK " and also tick the " No GUI Boot " option too.
    • Click " Apply "and then on " OK " and thats it.

  3. Disable the Aero Theme on Windows 7

  4. The aero user interface certainly adds some " Eyecandy " to Windows 7 but certainly is a resource hog especially when, what you expect from windows 7 is more performance juice. Aero user interface squeezes your graphics or video card to its maximum. So why cant we just avoid the Windows 7 aero? if we care more about speed and performance in Windows 7. So Disabling the Aero in Windows 7 certainly adds an extra speed boost to it.

    Speed Up Windows 7 by disabling the aero user interface
    • Right Click on your Desktop and select " Personalize " click the Window Color Tab.

    • Uncheck the Box saying " Enable Transparency " and then click on " Open classic appearance properties for more color options".

    • Then a window will open up. Apply a Standard or Basic theme from it. The Standard Windows 7 theme is more preferred.

    Disabling the aero theme alone in Windows 7 will really speed things up.

  5. Disabling the Unwanted Visual Effects in Windows 7 to Speed Up more

  6. Even though we have tuned off the aero effects in Windows 7 still there are many unwanted visual effects that can be safely disabled to speed up windows 7 even more.

    Speeding Up Windows 7 by removing unwanted visual effects
    • For this right click on " Computer" and select "Properties" from the right click menu.

    • Click on " Advanced System Settings " from the left pane to open up the " System Properties " window.

    • Select the "Advanced" tab from it. Then Under " Performance " click " Settings ". Choose " Custom: " Options From it.

    • Now untick all the options and select only the last four options (actually three only needed; you can untick the second option from the last four). See the screen shot if you have any doubt.

    • Now just logoff your system and turn logon.

    You will now notice the speed difference now.

  7. Disabling the Unwanted Services to Speed up Windows 7

  8. There are many services in windows 7 that we dont require for our daily use. There are some exceptional cases though. Services such as "print spooler" is only needed when we use a printer. If we use a printer only occasionally we can safely turn off that service in Windows 7 and turn it on only when we need to take a print.

    I have previously prepared a List of services in Windows 7 that can be safely set to manual / disabled.

    Disabling the unneeded services in Windows 7 can really speed up the system boot time.

  9. Disable the User account control (UAC) Feature in Windows 7

  10. The User account control (UAC) feature in Windows 7 is very annoying though it says it can protect your computer from harmful virus activity etc. But if you are a daily user of your computer this windows 7 feature will be a total nuisance to you.

    To Disable and Turnoff UAC in Windows 7

    Speed UP Windows 7 by disabling User Account Control(UAC)
    • From the Control Panel open the " User Accounts and Family Safety " > User Account.

    • Click the User Account Control settings link.

    • Now just Drag the Slider towards "Never Notify".

    • Click "OK" and Reboot your system.

    Disabling UAC is for advanced users only i dont recommend doing it if not.

  11. Disabling the Search Indexing Feature in Windows 7

  12. Most of the Windows 7 users do less searches in there system. The Search Indexing service in Windows 7 will index keeps track of the files so that they can be found quickly when asked at some other time. This feature is useful only if you perform frequent searches on your system.
    For occasional file searchers the Search Indexing service in Windows 7 is a total resource hog. It unwontedly eats up your system resources.
