Did you know that web browsers like Internet Explorer and Firefox only allow you have two downloads going at once?
How am I supposed to flex my broadband muscles if I’m restricted like that?
Want to up that count? Well, you can!
…at least in Mozilla Firefox, you can.
Just type “about:config” in your address bar, minus the quotes.
In the next screen you’ll want to find the line: network.http.max-persistent-connections-per-server .
Double click on it and change the value to as many as you’d like. Try to stay within reason, though; say 8 downloads at once.
There, you have broken the chains of your download cap! Now get out there and transfer some stuff!
