Speeding Up Internet Explorer
time, all the browser developers started cheating and increased the connection
limit because they realized how big of an impact that had on performance. The
following tweaks show you how to improve the performance of your browser
by increasing the connection limit further and also using other enhancements.
Speeding Up Internet Explorer
Internet Explorer cheats a little more in IE10 by bumping the concurrent
connection limit to eight for both HTTP 1.1 and HTTP 1.0 connections. If you visit
a web page with a lot of images and required files, such as CSS styles and
JavaScript, you can easily end up with a scenario in which your web browser
has to make more than 40 requests to the web server to download all the files
and then assemble the web page. Requesting only 8 of these 40 files at a time is
going to be a lot slower than downloading, say, 15 of them at a time.
By tweaking hidden registry values, you can direct Internet Explorer to break
Internet standards and download more than just two files at a time. Modifying
this setting is simple to do, but be careful; the standards police will be after you.
Follow these steps to speed up IE:
1. Open the Start screen, type regedit , and press Enter.
2. After Registry Editor loads, navigate through HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\
Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings .
3. Right-click in open space and create a new DWORD (32-bit) Value, as
shown in FigureĀ 17-1.
