I switched from IE to Mozilla (with the Navzilla theme, of course) for the tabbed browsing and pop up control. I was upset that loading my banking site and intranet site were so slow, but I'd resigned myself to live with it.

Now the sites fly! Thank you so much for posting that here!

BTW: Keep alive is a good thing and speeds up site access if you typically go to a site and then click around every few seconds. Basically, it keeps a connection open between you and the server for a few seconds. Depending on the server configuration, there is a timeout after a few seconds which breaks the connection.

If you surf like I do, say go to slashdot or google and then load a bunch of background tabs with stories/search results, you won't notice much slowdown by turning this off.
