"Firefox is today releasing Firefox 67 to introduce a bunch of new
performance improvements. The company is changing how Firefox works and
renders web pages to help speed things up. And according to the
the latest release of Firefox is faster than ever before."
What we now have are faster client applications (e.g., Firefox), faster
modems and routers, and faster broadband speeds but servers that cannot
deliver Internet packets fast enough to provide any appreciable overall
improvement in speed.
Oh, they can. But on the one hand, the providers aren't providing the
fiber optic (fiber optic) required; and on the other hand, they have
permission to throttle speeds. Why innovate and improve if you don't
have to? That just wastes shareholders' dollars.
Enjoy life while you still can,
Just checking my provider's speed (Comcast) at a little over 200Mbps. I
have their highest speed plan which can go to 1000 but have never
clocked much above 500. There is a fiber optic going to the bottom of
my development but then split into cable and I assume I will never see
max unless everyone else using it is off line.
Good point. The total throughput is divided by the number of subscribers
online downstream of the node. Fiber merely allows more subs per node,
plus a enough of a speed increase to impress the customers. No client
(email, browser) can affect that.
I've noticed marked differences in connecting and subsequent download
speeds during the day. Generally worst for email around 8 to 10a.m. May
be different in your 'hood, if speed matters, changing your daily
schedule may help. But that's not a _Firefox_ (or Thunderbird) issue. :-)
