Chimera config changes increase speed


From Mikel:If you've used Chimera on the Mac, and you haven't tweaked it already, you must enable pipelining.

  1. Quit Chimera
  2. cd ~/Library/Application Support/Chimera/Profiles/default/<random>.slt/
  3. Append these lines to prefs.js:
   user_pref(\"network.http.pipelining\", true);
   user_pref(\"network.http.proxy.pipelining\", true);
  1. Restart Chimera

The perceived speed difference is incredible (although obviously it's limited to sites where pipelining would help).
