Web page load time in Linux browsers is slow compared to ...


The load times for web pages in any browser on any of my Linux boxes is slow compared to browsers on Windows boxes.

Is there any thing I can adjust in Linux or the browsers to speed up the load times?

Thanks for any help

If you are using Firefox, give this a try. A tip that was passed on to me, seemed to make a diff.

type "about:config" in you address bar, the items you are looking for are

1.) network.http.pipelining
2.) network.http.pipelining.firstrequest
3.) network.http.pipelining.maxrequests
4.) network.http.proxy.pipelining
5.) nglayout.ititialpaint.delay

Set #1, #2, and #4 to "true".
Set #3 to a high number, like 32.
Set #5 to 0. (or a low number if errors appear in rendering tables)

Worked for me, hopefully it will help.
