Speed up Firefox

Am I the only person out there that has not ever really noticed a big speed increase when using Fasterfox? The newest version of the extension is out, and it now works with Firefox 2. If you can, leave me a comment if you have really noticed a difference using this extension – because I am confused why I have not.

Fasterfox allows you to tweak many network and rendering settings such as simultaneous connections, pipelining, cache, DNS cache, and initial paint delay.

Dynamic speed increases can be obtained with the unique prefetching mechanism, which recycles idle bandwidth by silently loading and caching all of the links on the page you are browsing.
