If you use Firefox and Gmail, you can make the latter run much faster, using a new protocol aptly-named SPDY. What to do:
- Update Firefox to the latest version: 11
- To enable SPDY in Firefox, type
about:configin your location bar and press enter.
- Now enter
network.http.spdy.enabledin the search box.
- Double click the entry corresponding to
network.http.spdy.enabledto enable it.
(if you use Chrome, SPDY is enabled by default)
