Can I edit the "about:config: file in Camino as one can do in Firefox. I tried it but a window appears but no listing.
I was trying to edit Camino the same as.....

1.Type "about:config" into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries: network.http.pipelining network.http.proxy.pipelining network.http.pipelining.maxrequests Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading. 2. Alter the entries as follows: Set "network.http.pipelining" to "true" Set "network.http.proxy.pipelining" to "true" Set "network.http.pipelining.maxrequests" to some number like 30. This means it will make 30 requests at once. 3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it "nglayout.initialpaint.delay" and set its value to "0". This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives. If you're using a broadband connection you'll load pages MUCH faster now!

about:config is broken in Camino right now. But many of the config's you can access that way can be edited ou activated using CEP (Camino Extra Preferences) or CamiOptions, that can be found here:

CEP is for 0.8.x and CamiOptions requires a recent nightly or the 0.9a2 release. ;)

I suggest that you read this page before doing that though, specifically the part where it points out that long pipelines can be <em>slower</em> than not pipelining.
