How to speed up surfing


I used all known web browser, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Epiphany ... but they can not achieve good speed loading pages.
My Internet speed is 4 mib/s.
Now use a web browser Chrome, but I'm not satisfied with the speed of loading pages.

Please some advice.

PS
Sorry, my English is very bad.

You don't say what your linux distro is, but some have IPV6 enabled, when it should not be.

So each page tries to use IPV6 for DNS lookup, waits...... while it fails, and then uses IPV4 (which works).

So, try disabling IPV6.
For firefox alone, it is easy:

Go to about:config

Then set network.dns.disableIPv6 to true

Disabling IPV6 for your whole computer is a better idea if you / your ISP are not using IPV6, but we do not know your distro.

I use Linux Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit, GNOME.

Previously I disabled IPv6 on this instruction:
http://www.webupd8.org/2009/11/how-t...buntu-910.html

Disabling IPv6 did not happen any better.

I blocked web browser Chrome with ekstesnsions AdBlock and FlashBlock.

But speed load page is very slow.

Take into account that the speed/loading times do not depend on your own connection speed only, but on the other end (i.e. every server between you and the other end, including it) too. Some servers are slower than others, and some may have lots of traffic slowing things down. However if you can measure that on your computer (and connection) the loading times are considerably slower than on some other computer, and on all sites, then it's probably something at your end. With web pages firewalls shouldn't matter much, but if you start digging through logfiles, don't forget your routers or firewalls either.

Another thing is advertising; some parts of the page may try to move data around even when it has nothing to do with the content you're after (statistical data, targeted content, ..) and that might slow the loading down too. It's complicated these days, when web isn't about static pages anymore, let alone simple text and some colors.

You can try some firefox tweaks, see links below in my sig.

Although, if this happens with every browser, I'm thinking it's a connection problem. Are you using DSL ?

This comparison of loading pages are in relation to the Windows OS.

On all the pages have a problem.
In earlier versions of Ubuntu did not have these problems.

I have cable Internet (cable modem) in a small home network (three computers), networking through router. On the router ports are open and do not use a firewall.

I will try tweaking Firefox from signature.

Have you tried any MTU tweaking? Or is it JUST the browsers that are slow?

You might try bypassing DNS by hardcoding them into your /etc/hosts. If that helps, then you need a better / closer DNS server.

Sorry, I could not before ....

Three:

Some lines are missing from previous link, if they already have written higher values.

This is a useful site but only for advanced users (not for me):

Example of how to run faster Firefox:

This site will not load any of the OS (Google translator), just to demonstrate how quickly gives the answer from the server after these actions.

PS
Sorry for my bad English.
