This isn't a new browser - it's Mozilla's nightly build of Firefox 3.1. You can in fact praise them for possibly having a much faster Firefox when 3.1 comes out. However, I still frown upon telling the general public to download nightlies, because they are by no means stable.

Well, optimizing Opera should also include installing its powerful widgets.

A-freakingly-mazing post man.

I personally keep disk cache to 0 since loading from the net is faster then from disk, most of the time (if you have bad connection that wont be so). I also have memory cache set to 0 for some time now, since I like opera consuming only betwean 10~40mb. Note that the memory cache works in Opera does not mean "if you close the tab and go back it will reload the entire contents".

(oh noes accidental thread necro)

Here's a simple trick for those like me who hate sorting though addresses.
Opera instructions but other browsers should work similarly...
  • Go to Tools > Advanced > History
  • Set Addresses to 0
  • Tools > Delete private data, and clear the history of typed in addresses;
  • You will need to restart Opera at this point.
Now I can see how people with disorganised bookmarks will have a problem with this but the idea is to bookmark not the sites you like but rather the sites you wish to type in the addressbar time and time again (and preferably as few addresses from the same domain as possible).

Opera checks the booksmarks when you type in the address field so having nice and simple bookmarks you will get perfect simple suggestion each time.

For form field completion you can 1) use wand's field thingy to get fast complete with Ctrl+Enter or 2) add wathever it is you add frequently to notes, you can press DownArraw while in a textfield (not a textarea) to access notes on the fly.

[Automatic Google "I'm feeling lucky" search for misstyped addresses]

This one is a double-edge sword but, if you want to tell Opera not to load its default weekly updated site-fixing scripts; since well you don't visit sites that need them:

opera:config#UserPrefs|BrowserJavaScript

Set it to 0. Documentation: http://www.opera.com/docs/browserjs/

The recent proliferation of threads here with YouTube embeds has made FlashBlock a pretty valuable add-in for Firefox for me.

FlashBlock adds an equivalent feature to Firefox. When I visited the recent OP/ED thread, my CPU usage jumped, and the page took quite a while to load. It appears that each embedded player instance has to be decoded. With FlashBlock, each item is overlaid with a play button that activates the Flash content on demand.

I'm guessing firefox is chocking on that many flash players? In Opera I never had a use for such things but you can: 1) press F12 and Disable Plugins, or 2) use FlashBlock of course (blocks silverlight too).

Yey .. +1 to -1 @ Firefox. I'm almost exclusively on Opera, so I never face that problem

Google Chrome is very "free" with sending information; so if you don't like it there is this alternative version that can be used, its called Iron and is created by a german company. Effectively, Chrome striped of all the information abuse.

For Firefox users, apart from all the optimizing techniques introduced in the previous posts, disabling IPv6 at about:config may also be helpful.

Quote:
network.dns.disableIPv6=true
If you notice that it takes a long period of time to go pass the "Waiting for response..." stage before the actual download of page content, chances are that Firefox has spent too much time querying an non-existing IPv6 address. However great IPv6 technically is, as of today very few websites actually use it. Ironically you may get better performance by simply switching off the IPv6 function.



Btw currently I'm using Firefox+Vimperator as my main browser. Firefox may not be the fastest browser on earth in terms of startup and rendering, but the extra speed, efficiency and screen estate I can gain from a command-line browser environment outweigh all its shortcomings.




Don't get freaked out by the Vi/Vim technical mumbo jumbo. Just like me, you don't need any Vim background to enjoy the speed and benefits of 100% mouseless browsing. Print a cheat sheet out and stick it on your desk for a day. On the next day you gain full command of your browser at your fingertips, as well as an extra piece of scrap paper.

These are the Vimperator plugins I am using, btw. To maximize screen estate (screencap example), I recommend installing autoHideStatusbar for firefox as well.

You may be interested in Ubiquity from Mozzila labs (there is a Opera equivalent for anyone interested).

Which reminds me, for more Opera js fun check out this thread on their forum.

I have tried fiddling with it for a few days, but found it a bit buggy and crashes the system from time to time. I ended up uninstalling it, and mapped some of the more useful commands to Vimperator .

IMO the greatest thing of ubiquity is its simplicity as a command-line tool which even the mouse-loving crowd can very easily get used to (unlike Vimperator ). The community-based nature also allows infinite expansion of its commands. Somehow I feel that it will be bundled with the next generation of Mozilla browser.

Rather than start another thread, this seemed as good a place as any to mention today's report about updating to Internet Explorer 8. Those crafty folks at Microsoft have included an additional "feature" if you elect to install the IE8 update; it makes IE the default browser even if you have another one like Firefox or Opera selected.

Eh, people are blowing that whole IE8 thing out of proportion. It's not like it stops you from choosing another browser as default anyway.
