It does make a lot of pages load faster, but apparently isn't recommended for pages with POST requests. Pretty neat, though. Opera has this enabled by default.
I haven't noticed any increase in speed after following this tutorial. In fact if anything total page load times have increased; now, for some reason, images can take a long time to load.
I read somewhere that not all servers like pipelined requests, and that it can slow things down in some cases. I don't know much about this area, but I can say that having used this for a couple of weeks (I knew about it before this tutorial was around), I've not noticed much if any improvement. It may just be that I'm unlucky and can't make full use of this because of my ISP or something.
I would be interested to know how many people this has worked for.
I think something else to be added is the AdBlock Plus Add-on.
Sometimes ads (or even some images) take ages to load.
Plus it makes websites look neater and cleaner.
Higher values will cause a delay before the first request completes but will make the last request complete sooner. Higher values will also cause more of a delay if a connection fails.
