Firefox Rendering Tweaks

Lifehacker has an interesting article if you love delving into Firefox's about:config menu to manually tweak the internals of the fox. Such as this one...

Creating an nglayout.initialpaint.delay integer preference lets you control how long Firefox waits before starting to render a page. If this value isn't set, Firefox defaults to 250 milliseconds, or 0.25 of a second. Some people report that setting it to 0 -- i.e., forcing Firefox to begin rendering immediately -- causes almost all pages to show up faster.

Besides highlighting several great tweaks, Computer World also references the about:config wiki hosted by Mozilla to explain and store about:config tweaks. The about:config wiki hosts thousands of about:config tweaks so you can customize to your heart's content.
