How to make your IE be fast like other browsers?

I always used to bitch IE for being very slow while opening web pages. In fact it can be faster too when you start up with no ad ons. But we can not disable ad ons for the sake of making it fast. In fact most of the modern applications uses flash and javascript in their web pages. So what could be the solution?

Follow these steps,

1. Start the Registry Editor
2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Internet Settings
3. Select New > DWORD Value from the Edit menu
4. Name the new value "MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server"
5. Right-click the MaxConnectionsPer1_0Server value and choose Modify
6. Under Base, click the radio button next to Decimal
7. In the Value Data: box enter the number of simultaneous connections you want to set (for example 10 is a good value).
8. Click OK
9. Repeat steps 3 - 7 using the new value as "MaxConnectionsPerServer"
10. Exit the registry editor

Now start your IE and you will notice a difference. So finally your wish to make IE run faster is fulfilled.

Why is it so?
To comply with current Internet standards, Internet Explorer limits the number of simultaneous downloads to two downloads, plus one queued download. This configuration is a function of the browser. However, as connection speeds increase, and the number of total connections that are allowed to Internet servers increase, the two-connection limit may be restrictive.

Please Note: Changing the maximum number of connections beyond two is a violation of Internet standards; use at your own risk!

Now IE has become fast so am I going to use IE? No will be my answer. I use Chorme its awesome. Follow the steps in my previous post on How to Dowload/Upgrade Google Chrome 2.0 Pre Beta

My next preference is to Firefox 3.5.
