Hi can anyone tell me to get the fastest internet possible.
I have done the pipelining tweaks and have the most recent Firefox.
I also has cable ISP with about 25 Mbps.
Is there anyway to make my browser load almost instantly?
I have an online business and do ALOT of downloading, and multiple browsers working.
It seems like it lags
Thanks

Latest Firefox is version 3.6. According to Mozilla tests, Firefox 3.6 is 15% faster than Firefox 3.5. If you still find it slow then you need a CPU and RAM update.

You say you have multiple browsers working? If it means you have many Firefox windows open then you may want to use tabs instead of windows. Tabs significantly improve the speed compared to opening a separate browser window.

Lagging for Firefox may be normally because of these things - bandwidth is being used by some other process (for example, you are downloading a file), your DNS servers are not responding fast enough, your Firewall/Antivirus is scanning your HTTP traffic.

Since you already know how to change Firefox settings, try this too :
network.dns.disableIPv6 = true
nglayout.initialpaint.delay = 0
