Reduce number of max or concurrent http connections

  • Firefox has this feature in about:config
    Reason is that many proxy servers have limitations on such things, and another reason is that it would be needed for slow internet users, to prevent time outs because of downloading to many files at once, and another reason is that this feature was available in older opera like opera 12.
    Example of such vpn or proxy is your-freedom vpn. and maybe webshare proxy...but i haven't checked others like public proxies lists which are easy to find on the internet, they may all have such limitations.
    To prevent files aka requests from being cancelled out. Easy to observe this via inspect element or 3rd party apps like Proxifier which show error message for any cancelled request.

  • Opera is Chromium-based and on Windows at least, Chromium-based browsers use the system network stack. This implies that you have to edit the registry to change the max amount of connections. Of course, doing so will affect IE, Edge and all other browsers and apps that use the system network stack. (Firefox and Opera 12 use their own.)

    So, something like https://www.mr2t.com/tweaks-ie-connections/. But, never tested to see if Chromium honors that. If not, things might just be hard-coded in Chromium.

    Would be nice to have something in Opera's settings though if possible.

    If you can find something that works for Chrome, it might work for Opera too.
