In general, Firefox loads pages faster than Internet Explorer. Why settle for marginally faster when you can tweak speed settings and dramatically enhance page load times. Fasterfox makes great use of Firefox prefectching capability by loading links in the background using idle computing cycles. It also tweaks a number of network performance settings on your PC to help improve throughput. And blocking of those annoying Flash pop-ups on pages makes sure you aren't waiting for an ad to get to the meat on a page.
