Internet speed is a very important factor for users. But it must be borne in mind that it is not only the speed itself that influences. That is, it does not only influence the rate that we have contracted or how the connection to our devices reaches us. Keep in mind that it will influence the system we are using, as well as browsers. In this case, we are going to talk about it. We will explain how to improve the loading speed in Mozilla Firefox. We are going to use an extension that is available in this browser.
There is no doubt that users when browsing the Internet, seek to have the highest possible speed. We talk about how both the rise and fall adapt to what we have control. But you also have to take into account the importance of ping or latency, as well as the quality and stability of the connection.
On many occasions, inconveniences can arise that cause a malfunction of our systems. We can see how the speed of the network is seriously compromised. Sometimes it can even be due to misusing browsers.
Mozilla Firefox is one of the most used browsers by users. It is present in most operating systems. This means that you will have many interesting tools to use. There are many extensions that facilitate the task in our day today.
Some of those extensions can even help improve browsing speed. For example, preventing a web page that we access from loading all content at once. We are going to use Faster Pageload. It is a complement to the Firefox browser that allows pages to load faster.
Before installing this extension, we will have to enable a couple of functions in the browser. For this, we enter about: configuration. Then we run the following: network.dns.disablePrefetchfrom https. When we are in there, we have to set the value to False.
Later we also have to change the value of network.predictor.enable-prefetch. In this case, we are going to set it to True.
Now we will have everything necessary to use the Faster Pageload extension correctly. To install it, it is best to go directly to the official Firefox page.
After Installing, the Faster Pageload extension will work automatically. We will not have to take any further action. You just have to keep it installed and ready. When we mouse over a link, it will speed up the load when we click on that link. What it does is preload the content.
According to the developer, it takes an normal of 400 ms to hover your mouse over a link and click on it. Time use to load the resource to speed up the load.
In addition, this extension also delays the images. That is, it will not load the images as soon as we open a page, but simply the content that we are going to see in the first place. In this way, time focus on loading the website and its main components, while the rest is loading as we scroll.
In short, this extension can speed up the loading of web pages if they are loaded through clicks with the links. It does not help if web pages are loaded automatically, for example, at the start of the browser or through external applications. Of course, keep in mind that the effectiveness of preload depends on a number of factors, including the speed and latency of the Internet connection, the time it takes to click on the links, and the linked resource. However, the normal thing is that it helps us save time and can load web pages faster.
On the other hand, it must remember that it is essential to keep the browser in good condition. This means that it must be free of threats, malware, and other tools that may interfere with its proper functioning. We need to take care of the extensions that we install, always download them from official sources and not allow the entry of possibly malicious software.
This is something that we must apply to any browser we use regardless of the operating system. In this case, we have focused on an extension for Mozilla Firefox, but we could also look for a similar one for other widely used browsers such as Google Chrome.
