Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fasterfox is a Mozilla Firefox extension that provides an interface to tweak some performance related settings such as browser network connection, cache, timings, as well as provide an optional controversial feature which forces Link prefetching. These changes can decrease page loading time. Since 2007, the original extension is not maintained by the developer Tony Gentilcore and is not compatible with Firefox 3.0 or later. With Fasterfox prefetching enabled, the browser will prefetch all links on a page in the background. Subsequently, if one or more of those links is clicked, only a fraction of the time to load the page will be used, since the page has already been cached. Users can disable this option. Fasterfox version 1.0.1 and later checks the robots.txt file on the root folder of servers to see whether or not it should prefetch the page.show more
