    19 Afterwards, just restart the browser and experience the difference! For some automated additional performance hacks, check out the [[https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/1269|FasterFox extension]]. You also can do the same tweaks manually with the help of [[http://www.tweakfactor.com/articles/tweaks/firefoxtweak/4.html|this page]].

For this reason, you may want to install [[http://www.pps.jussieu.fr/~jch/software/polipo/|Polipo]] and use that instead of Privoxy to get the performance benefits of pipelining. If you use [[https://torbutton.torproject.org/|Torbutton]] (which you should, if you want [[https://www.torproject.org/torbutton/design/#attacks|any anonymity at all]]), all of the Tor-relevant privacy scrubbing features of Privoxy are no longer necessary.

    2324NOTE2: Do not use page prefetching. Disable this if it is enabled. Prefetching is a speculative feature, which assumes that you will read the pages referenced by the links in the current page you are viewing. This places undue load on the Tor network and clog your circuits with unnecessary traffic. Its unlikely you will read all the pages referenced by the current page, especially in the case of search engines results.
