General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=Doon] Thanks neophyte! The info on that page finally helped me understand something about K-Meleon's settings that have been bothering me. The default setting for the [color=blue]network.http.max-connections-per-server[/color] preference is [color=blue]8[/color], as desga2 posted. I now realize that prior to using K-Meleon I suppose was used to IE's (and perhaps even FF 1.5's) [color=blue]2[/color] connections per server. I'm on a slow dialup connection that is often slowed further after it rains. On pages with multiple large images (like screenshots) I'd noticed that K-Meleon was loading too many at once (eight, I suppose). With the pixels of that many images coming in so slowly it's been torture (beyond the everyday torture of dialup), particularly in this era of ignorant broadband users who throw uncompressed PNGs around like confetti. I have now (experimentally) adjusted the max-connections-per-server to 2, to take me back to a setting that worked well with a slow connection. Two images loading at a time in a single tab feels much faster, offering my eyes some visible and timely progress. Other dialup users might do well to tweak this setting. Footnote: It's later now and I'm not sure if this setting works well or not because it often locks down the loading of multiple tabs from the same site in way that I don't recall seeing in previous browsers, so there may have been some other balancing behaviours in play.
