Speeding up firefox has a useful guide on speeding up firefox for broadband users. basically after getting to the hidden config settings you set the browser to request more data that it usually does.

1.Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once.

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0”. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages MUCH faster now!

Things I started to observe and not doing anything about them...

!) A traffic police stops a auto (you know the small auto, which carries goods) and charges for no reason, the auto guy tries to defend but they threaten to seize the auto. They charge him 250 bucks, I did not find any reason why the auto guy should be fined.

!!) Parking lot, the parking guy helps me park by bike and take it out.. also takes care of it while others are parking.. I pay him 2 bucks for all this.. End of the day 2 police men come and take almost 50% of his earnings, reason.. hmmm, no reason..

P.S. *I did not do anything about it..
**To all the sons and daughters of these corrupted officers, you are the only one who can change your mother or father.. just don't accept anything they buy you which they cannot afford with their salary.
