This software was made for easy and quick optimization of Firefox settings to allow user experience fast browsing speeds. It is based on a collection of optimization settings collected and tested by Tweakfactor.Though home site TotalIdea Software has discontinued the product, it still seems to workon the current versions of Firefox.
Its very simple to use indeed. Just select the settings from the options that suit your condition the best and the software will do the changes automatically thus rending your Firefox faster.
Softpedia tells us how to determine if this FireTune really works for you.
How to tell whether Firefox is faster after optimizing it:
Clear the cache of Firefox from the Firefox settings dialog - this is very important!
Before you optimize Firefox, navigate to http://www.numion.com/stopwatch/ and do a speed test on http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/
The time needed to load the site completely will be displayed to you in the browser window. Write down the time.
Clear the cache of Firefox from the Firefox settings dialog again - this is very important!
Now, close Firefox, and optimize it with FireTune
Start Firefox again, and repeat the speed test on http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/
Compare the displayed result with the result from the test before the optimization.
Also there's a warning that some anti viruses may detect this as a virus or trojan but its absolutely safe. Its detected as a part of heuristics and is a 'false positive' so there is nothing to worry about it.
Try this its extremely simple to use and it did give positive results for me.
