    Firefox v1.0.7 is my default browser… it’s easy to use and has lots of useful extensions, and I’m pretty excited on their final release of the new v1.5. :D But I was wondering then, that maybe some of its extensions can cause a slow down in internet speed. As I’m just using dial-up connection, so anything that can affect my already slow connection I can possibly uninstall. :p

    First you should tell us what extensions you have?

    Its my experience that extensions dont slow down browsing speed, I have about 6 extensions, and no slow down.

    I have 14 extensions, some I use often and some occasionally. I am on dial-up, just curious if some of them affects net speed browsing.

    I dont think that they would, however I use only one of those extensions, and Im also on dail-up, and have had no problems with any extension I have ever used.

    For sure anything that requires additional connections to other websites that otherwise wouldn't be needed or very big complicated extensions.
