This guy doesn't know what he's talking about. All web servers that conform to HTTP 1.1 are required to support pipelining. That being said, he is correct in saying that some servers don't like it. Mozilla itself is aware of these servers, and if it finds one of these few specific server types at the remote end, it won't use pipelining.

Moreover, he suggests fooling with max connections (and the like). DON'T. If you do, you're putting undue stress on every single server that you load a page from.
