    Dont know if this has ever been posted before, but I aint seen it, so here goes.
    im on a College campus connection so I barely notice any speed difference, but I can say I didnt break my machine doing this.

    its not MY server, I thought about that. basically hammering DNS servers for webpages to get them faster.

    personally, F--- em. Whats good for me, is good for ME!

    personally, it will only make a marginal difference. there's a couple of threads about this, so there's no need to make a new one, especially with exaggerated claims.

    having this configuration isn't going to tax the servers that much.

    The big way that FasterFox is 'unethical' in hammering servers, is that it will fetch the information for every link on the current page you are on. Most users would never do that, and never all at once. The settings this person laid out will not do that, and will not mercilessly hammer a server.
