I am guessing that it speeds up browsing by opening the pipeline to full capacity

I think pipelining would allow more than one stream from HTTP to be loaded at a time. So for example it might better handle loading from two pages at once. I really don't know just my guess from the names. Pipeling in computers usually means some form of concurrency.

Enable pipelining in Chimera

You can enable HTTP/1.1 pipelining in chimera by adding the following lines to your ~/Library -> Application Support -> Chimera -> profiles -> default -> [random].slt -> prefs.js file:

user_pref("network.http.pipelining", true);
user_pref("network.http.proxy.pipelining", true);

Pipelining speeds up browsing a lot. <HR></blockquote>

Can someone explain what this is?

Cheers,

From the HTTP RFC:

- HTTP requests and responses can be pipelined on a connection.
Pipelining allows a client to make multiple requests without
waiting for each response, allowing a single TCP connection to
be used much more efficiently, with much lower elapsed time.
