Background

HTTP is the application-layer protocol that most web pages are transferred with. In HTTP 1.1, multiple requests can be sent before any responses are received. This is known as pipelining. This preference specifies the maximum number of requests to pipeline at once.

Possible values and their effects

Any integer from 1 to 8 inclusive determines the maximum number of requests to pipeline at once. A value of 1 disables pipelining. (Default: 4)

Caveats

Recommended settings

Higher values will cause a delay before the first request completes but will make the last request complete sooner. Higher values will also cause more of a delay if a connection fails.
