Don't surf the web. Command it.

<p>You&rsquo;re writing an email to invite a friend to meet at a local restaurant in Vienna that neither of you has been to.&nbsp; You&rsquo;d like to include a map. Today, this involves the disjointed tasks of message composition on a web-mail service, mapping the address on a map site, searching for reviews on the restaurant on a search engine, and finally copying all links into the message being composed.&nbsp; This familiar sequence is an awful lot of clicking, typing, searching, copying, and pasting in order to do a very simple task.&nbsp; And you haven&rsquo;t even really sent a map or useful reviews&mdash;only links to them.</p> <p>This kind of clunky, time-consuming interaction is common on the Web. Mashups help in some cases but they are static, require Web development skills, and are largely <em>site-centric</em> rather than <em>user-centric</em>.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s even worse on mobile devices, where limited capability and fidelity makes this onerous or nearly impossible.</p> <p>Most people do not have an easy way to manage the vast resources of the Web to simplify their task at hand. For the most part they are left trundling between web sites, performing common tasks resulting in frustration and wasted time.</p>

CSS-based solution for fixed menu

This solution of "CSS-based layout with fixed menu" has already been implemented and tested:

  • The following css style has been created for the menu (id: menu):

    #menu {
    font-family: georgia,palatino, serif;
    display:block; top:300px; left:50%; width:200px; position:fixed; margin-left: 320px;
    background-color: #fff;
    }

  • For Internet Explorer, which does not support the given styling, a workaround is implemented, which unfortunately breaks the fixed position, but is needed to display the menu at all:

    * html #menu {position:absolute;}

Configure firefox to load web pages faster

The solution is quite easy. You have to enter "about:config" in your address bar of the firefox browser. Here you find many options for your browser. Of special interest are the options for pipelining. When pipelining is enabled, the browser can send several requests at once, resulting in shorter loading times and an enhanced browsing experience.So the steps are:

  1. Enter "about:config" into the address bar
  2. Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true"
  3. Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true"
  4. Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to a higher number, for example "15" (this sets how many requests are made at once)
  5. You can also set a new value by right-clicking and selecting New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to "0". This value defines the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on the received information.
