Internet Explorer performance is greatly dependent in part on the number of simultaneous connections that can be made for a current page. By default, the value is 4. This means only a maximum of 4 simultaneous connectons will be made per server.
Start > Run > Regedit
Key: Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Internet Settings
Name: MaxConnections PerServer
Value: 10 (Decimal)
Name: MaxConnections Per1_0Server
Value: 10 (decimal)
If these keys dont already exist, create them by doing the following:
- Make one DWORD value [Right click, New> DWORD Value] and name it "MaxConnections Per1_0Server" then put 10 under decimal value
- Make a second DWORD value [Right click, New> DWORD Value] and name it "MaxConnections PerServer" then put 10 under decimal value
That's it. It should help out on Internet Explorer speed - especially for certain web applications. Another alternative would be to use Firefox. Firefox is a better web browser anyway.
