Browser Tuning Tips

The browser may not typically be a bottleneck, but you probably want to get the best performance out of it that you can. Here are some suggestions, both general and specific to certain browsers.

General Tips

The following sections provide some general tips for getting the most out of your browser.

Upgrade

Try to get the latest nonbeta version of your browser. Newer versions usually include new features like HTTP 1.1 persistent connections to improve performance.

That said, there are some things to be said for the older versions. First of all, beta versions of new browsers often have bugs and performance problems associated with them, while the older nonbeta versions are more stable. Netscape 4.0 beta ran Java especially slowly, but this was fixed in the version that was officially released. You may want to wait until a browser is officially released before trying it.
