From Mikel:If you've used Chimera on the Mac, and you haven't tweaked it already, you must enable pipelining.
- Quit Chimera
cd ~/Library/Application Support/Chimera/Profiles/default/<random>.slt/
- Append these lines to
user_pref(\"network.http.pipelining\", true); user_pref(\"network.http.proxy.pipelining\", true);
- Restart Chimera
The perceived speed difference is incredible (although obviously it's limited to sites where pipelining would help).
