Several of the preference tweaks will indeed enhance performance for a reasonably large percentage of websites but will cause a not insignificant number to break. (By refusing to load, hanging the browser, etc.) The prefs are generally that way for a good reason.

Does there exist any useful statistical data out there to verify the "not insignificant number" claim? I've been browsing the web with pipelining enabled for ages and have yet to come across a page that doesn't work. Is the problem real or one of these myths that stay around because people read on the internet that pipelining has problems so it must be true?
