In my earlier post I suggested enabling HTTP Pipelining to boost page load time performance in Firefox 16.0.2 and I figured it was important to also do some “real world testing” so I did exactly that by loading google.com five times with the cache cleared each time using a benchmark tool while having HTTP Pipelining on and off.
These are the results and as you can see except for the first run HTTP Pipelining proved to result in faster page load times than having it off which is the default in Firefox.
With everything from Firefox OS, Chrome Canary, Chromium Dev, Safari iOS, Chrome Mobile and Opera having HTTP Pipelining enabled why is it that Firefox for Desktop should not follow suit?
